Education Law Practice Area

Bone McAllester Norton’s Education Law attorneys understand the unique legal issues our public and private schools, colleges, and universities face today. Our attorneys advise educational institutions on legal matters impacting school operations on a day-to-day basis so that our clients can focus their time, attention, and effort on educating students. Through our comprehensive understanding of state and federal law, policies, and regulations, we provide clients with strategic, practical advice that is tailored to the educational setting. We have handled disputes in all federal and state courts and are well-versed in the substantive legal and procedural issues that arise in the context of education litigation, including administrative actions. It is our goal, of course, to keep our clients out of court, and thus we work with them in day-to-day decision-making, whether it involves employee and student training, policy development, discipline or terminations.
