This four-day Institute has been designed with busy educators in mind. In a short period of time, the participants will cover materials that would traditionally be taught in a semester-long course. This will be accomplished through significant reading in advance from Eric Herlan’s Maine Special Education Law, First Edition, 2013, as well as collected court and hearing officer rulings.
The School Law Institute is renowned as the most rewarding, useful and enjoyable school law course for educators in Maine. Taught by distinguished Drummond Woodsum school attorneys who have decades of experience both practicing and teaching school law, the four-day Institute distills from the vast body of education statutes and court decisions the knowledge that educators most need to perform their jobs effectively and to recognize and prevent legal problems before they arise.
