Education Law Section
Our next meeting will be on December 5, 2019 at 4:00p.m. in the Upstairs Conference Room of the BAMC building, to discuss plans for the upcoming year.
If you have a topic suggestion that you would like to have addressed at a section meeting, please contact either Co-Chair, listed to the right.
Montgomery County saw 154,000 new and returning students arrive at the County’s 202 public schools when school started. As we know, a percentage of those students and their families will encounter serious school challenges this school year with issues of student discipline, placement, suspension, and “alternative school” findings. Additionally, a good portion of the County's special needs student population will face significant disputes by parents regarding the provision and implementation of services guaranteed to their children by State and Federal laws.
As attorney members of our section, you will play a crucial role representing students and their families before the local school administration. To become one of the County's go-to lawyers in cases of serious student/family/school disputes, or if you are interested in learning the how to advise clients about school issues, you need to become a member of our section and attend our monthly meetings.
