Join us for the 2017 Education Law Conference.  Our theme this year is California Strong: Building Stronger Schools Through Effective Leadership.  The conference will provide attendees with the tools necessary to lead teams effectively.  As education administrators and board members, you are challenged every day to make tough decisions that impact the success and achievement of California’s students.  We hope to encourage and inspire you as you make “California Strong.”

Several members of our firm will be making presentations on some of the most important legal developments of the year.  We will address key topics of concern for superintendents, assistant superintendents, directors, managers and board members, providing knowledge and insight, as well as practical information with an eye toward limiting liability.  We have enabled you to customize your learning experience through the selection of breakout sessions tailored to address your specific department-related challenges.  Topics for this year include:
