Issues facing educational institutions have grown from student discipline and simple governance to encompass school violence, drug testing, laws governing Internet use, planned giving, complex financing arrangements, construction and capital projects, deferred compensation and sophisticated labor and employment issues. Fox Rothschild's Education Law Group offers a variety of services to education clients—including school districts, charter schools, intermediate units and higher education entities. We assist with governance, labor and employment, intellectual property, construction, financing, first amendment and special education issues.

Among the largest education law groups in Pennsylvania that regularly provide legal services to Pennsylvania public school entities, we are actively involved in a number of national and regional educational organizations. Our attorneys are prominent members of the National Association of College and University Attorneys, National School Boards Association, Council of School Attorneys, Pennsylvania Association of School Business Officials and the Pennsylvania School Boards. Clients turn to us for our knowledge in policy drafting and employment disputes and our handling of investigations by the Office of Civil Rights as well as right-to-know requests. We handle the gamut of education matters, from state level administrative hearings to Commonwealth and federal court proceedings. We also stay current on statutory and regulatory changes and offer observations about the culture of educational institutions, which enables us to effectively counsel and represent our clients.
