AALRR is one of the foremost legal firms specializing in education law. For the past several years, each spring, the firm hosts a two-day comprehensive leadership conference for higher education administrators and trustees focusing on important issues facing the education community.

  • Collective Bargaining/Labor Relations
  • Board Governance
  • Personnel Management
  • Other Legal Issues (including Board, District and administrator liability for Brown Act and other violations of law)

Who Should Attend?
This annual conference on education law is designed to cover a broad spectrum of legal issues facing colleges. Topics are selected that will appeal to presidents/chancellors, vice presidents/chancellors, deans, directors, managers, board members, and members of District negotiating teams.

Shell Beach is within driving distance of both Northern and Southern California and the Central Valley. “Locals” from the Central Coast also regularly attend. The conference hotel overlooks the ocean. Many educators and Board members tell us this is their favorite conference to attend every year.
