North Carolina’s social and political environment looks very different than it did a few years ago.  Our students, teachers, professors, administrators, and legislators are all reacting to the new normal.  But how can (or should) education lawyers respond?  Can (or should) we keep doing what we have always done?

Join us on Friday to hear former UNC School of Law Dean Jack Boger give historical context to the current climate surrounding North Carolina’s public schools.  Leverage the expertise of colleagues on topics such as student and teacher walk-outs, escalating school violence, federal rule changes on sex discrimination, and more. We will round out the day by better understanding attorneys’ ethical obligations regarding the balance between impartial advice to clients and active participation on relevant societal issues.  Schwartz and Shaw’s Brian Shaw will then provide his always-popular case law update.

You may register for the program here.  Higher education and school law attorneys alike will benefit from a deeper dive into these fascinating topics.  And you will receive 6.0 hours of CLE credit.
