Written in plain English, this book answers many questions including: Do educators need counsel and if so, in what areas will they be most effective? What are the basics of the attorney-client relationship? How do lawyers think and approach problem solving as compared with how academics solve problems? How can educators work most effectively with lawyers in the educational setting? What is preventive law and why should it be pursued within academia? The book is an expanded perspective of educational law practice for college and university presidents and chancellors, superintendents of school districts and governing boards. George S. Boggs, Ph.D., President and CEO Emeritus of the American Association of Community Colleges describes it as a short course in the areas legal counsel is needed, why it is needed, how lawyers are trained and how they think, how to employ staff attorneys and outsourced attorneys and the advantages of each. In addition, Mr. Echeverria, a clinical professor at the Roueche Graduate Center of National American University, provides informative, educational and entertaining anecdotes of actual cases and events he encountered as a practicing education lawyer. He demonstrates the added value of effective law services to educational institutions. Law Practice in Modern Educational Administration is an essential teaching and learning tool that should have a place on the bookshelf of every educational CEO from K-12 districts to colleges and universities. Students and teachers in graduate programs in educational administration will benefit greatly from the teaching materials. If you are a governing board member, you should not be without a copy of this important guide detailing the valuable contribution education attorneys can make to your institution.
