Join us for 8 interactive Zoom sessions! July 22-31, 2024 (9 am - 12 pm, Weekdays)
The School Law Institute – led by Drummond Woodsum school attorneys who have years of experience both practicing and teaching school law – is designed with busy educators in mind. The Institute distills from the vast body of education statutes, regulations, and court decisions the knowledge that educators need to perform their jobs effectively and to recognize and prevent legal problems before they arise. The institute involves significant reading in advance from the Maine School Law textbook, as well as collected court and arbitration rulings. Participants will participate in interactive exercises during the course and complete a multiple-choice take-home exam at the conclusion of the course. Grades will be based on class participation, in-class activities, and the final exam. The Institute is an intense and exciting learning experience for educators, so we encourage participants to be fully present during their online sessions. Because of the small class size and casual nature of the Institute, instructors Elek Miller and Isabel Ekman will be available to continue discussions and talk informally with participants throughout the 8-days of classes.
