We can offer you the legal advice you need to advocate your child’s case on your own. We can also offer competent legal representation for your child and yourself. In other words, we can offer whatever legal help you need depending upon your unique situation.
Education Law relates to teachers, schools, and American students’ right to public education. It also specifies the standards for students attending private schools.
Many parents and educationists are concerned about equality in education. States within the US have enacted several laws to ensure that all children receive an adequate education regardless of who they are or where they come from. The Equal Education Opportunities Act of 1974 forbids states from denying equal educational opportunities to a student on the basis of their color, race, national origin, and sex. If you are facing any issues in this area, you can contact us for consultation and we will come up with a solution most suited for you and your child’s future.
The standards for public and private education are also governed by education laws. The standards for assessing the achievements of students and the performance of teachers are set forth by state laws. These standards may be affected by rules and regulations imposed by the Department of Education. These laws usually specify minimum credit hours, standardized testing, compulsory subjects of study, and so on.
Special education should be available for disabled children. If the disability adversely affects the educational performance of a child, s/he qualifies for special education. The process for assessing a child’s need for special education is established by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. All states are required to follow the guidelines specified by the Federal Act. If a school denies your child their right for equal and adequate education, you can take legal action.

I am an alumni adviser for a fraternity at USC. The chapter was involved in a disciplinary action with the university. After receiving unusually harsh and unfair sanctions from a student/faculty review committee, our chapter sought counsel from James Kosnett. He attended a hearing with USC administrators, and prepared a compelling written appeal.
