UT Law’s 35th Annual School Law Conference
is the definitive program for school administrators, school board members, education professionals, and the legal counsel who represent them. Presentations offer in-depth, practical discussion of the legal and regulatory issues affecting schools and school districts, and provide a must-have set of materials and resources. This year’s conference offers attendees the opportunity to:
- Hear updates on Commissioner of Education decisions from the past year, recent developments from the Office of the Attorney General, and Fifth Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court decisions on special education.
- Examine the competing demands facing school districts on school safety issues, individual rights relating to political speech, and school dress codes.
- Explore school personnel issues regarding secure records compliance, the newly created “Do Not Hire” registry, rules for accepting gifts or benefits, and the risks social media poses for teachers and other educators.
- Learn how to navigate the grievance/disciplinary process, best practices when served with a lawsuit, and how to present a case referred to the Texas State Office of Administrative Hearings.
- Multiple networking opportunities with program faculty and fellow school law practitioners, including the Thursday Evening Reception.
