Education Law Committee
 
 
 

The Education Law Committee endeavors to connect with the public by providing exposure to the legal practice to interested high school youth and by informing parents, school districts and residents of Westchester County about legal resources within the area of Education Law. The Committee also seeks to provide attorneys representing school districts and attorneys representing parents with opportunities to interact within a neutral setting and increase collegiality. In addition, the Committee will be dedicated to offering continuing legal education to attorneys not only within the area of Education Law but also within related fields of practice. Meetings will be held regularly to enable practitioners to share professional experiences and to collaborate on organizing CLE programs, informational events and social gatherings.
