1 Industries EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES Education law is a cornerstone of our practice. We understand the complexities and unique legal issues involved in public education, from pre-kindergarten to the university level. AALRR serves more than 400 educational agencies K-12 school districts, county offices of education, community college districts, colleges, and universities. With our counsel and unmatched expertise, we support these agencies efforts to enhance the educational experience for all students. ATTORNEYS Our attorneys have helped shape the field of education law over the past four decades. Working with state leaders in education, we proudly support numerous educational organizations through diversity and inclusion initiatives, informational workshops, and innovation-focused conferences. Our annual Education Law Conference draws over 500 participants, and each year our professional development workshops serve hundreds of educators statewide. We created the benchmark for evaluating and improving teacher performance the FRISK Documentation Model now used throughout California and in other states. Christopher S. Andre Our Education Law Practice Group is the largest group of attorneys in the state devoted to this specialized field. AALRR s strength in Education Law includes expertise in personnel issues, including employee discipline and remediation; special education issues, including ADA, IDEA, and Section 504; charter issues; construction; investigations, higher education, tech issues, and much more. We work as a valued and trusted partner with the leadership teams of educational agencies across the state. Contact us to see how AALRR can provide that same value for your organization. Jenaun S.
