Summer Law Institute Set at Columbia's Teachers College

I have just received word about the annual School Law Institute that is held in the summer at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City.

The institute is July 14-18, and is aimed at lawyers, administrators, teachers, policy analysts, journalists, and anyone else with an interest in education law. Among the issues to be addressed are: school safety, equity, special education, student and teacher free speech, and religion in the public schools.

The faculty includes Jay P. Heubert of Teachers College and Columbia Law School; Gary Orfield, the renowned desegregation expert and a professor at the UCLA Graduate School of Education; Michael A. Rebell, the executive director of the Campaign for Education Equity and a professor at Teachers College; Maree Sneed of Hogan & Hartson in Washington, and Perry A. Zirkel, a professor of education and law at Lehigh University.

The institute brochure is here. Note that it isn't free: tuition runs $1,030 for credit or $1,585 for non-credit, and you're on your own for accommodations.
