School Law Conference
August 21-22, 2020

The 2020 School Law Conference will be held as a virtual event. Please make plans to join us ONLINE as we bring together board members, district administrators and the attorneys who advise them to present valuable, up-to-date information on legal and regulatory issues impacting public schools!

An essential part of school board service is understanding how state and federal laws affect public education. From legal procedures and regulations to new legislation aimed at boosting student achievement, school-related law is constantly changing – and it is important for school board leaders to have the latest insights and information. The SCSBA School Law Conference presents a slate of legal experts and policymakers who provide up-to-date analysis and guide board members through the often complicated terrain of school policy and law.
