Committed to Increasing Your Legal Literacy

Education Law Association is a uniquely diverse fellowship for all professionals in education who are interested in practical knowledge, scholarship, and interdisciplinary dialogue about legal and policy issues affecting education. 

We are a nonprofit member association, based in the U.S. but with international members, that offers unbiased information to a wide range of professional members about current legal issues affecting education and the rights of those involved in education, in both public and private K-12 schools, as well as in universities and colleges. For education professionals and legal advocates who represent either educational institutions or clients in their dealings with educational institutions, ELA is an indispensable resource.

ELA does not provide legal or professional advice, and the statements and opinions of its contributing authors or editors are their own. If you have questions about how issues discussed by ELA may apply to your own personal situation, you are encouraged to seek the advice of an attorney or other professional. ELA does not make legal referrals, although we can identify practicing attorneys who are ELA members.

Our members include practicing attorneys; education law professors; education faculty; school board members; public and private school K-12 and higher ed administrators; teachers; staff members of state and federal education agencies and professional associations; law librarians; hearing officers; policy-makers; advocates; graduate students and law students; and more.

Together, by presenting pertinent legal information our community strives to anticipate trends in education law and support scholarly research. Our reporting, through our network of volunteer members, provides information on case law and legislation in myriad formats, allowing members to make legally solid and confident decisions in policy and action. We also accomplish this through high quality print and electronic publications, conferences, seminars, webinars, and other professional forums.
