Inaugural Mississippi Education Law Conference on June 14

The first Mississippi Education Law Conference will provide an opportunity for educational leaders across the P-20 spectrum and attorneys representing schools and postsecondary institutions to enhance their understanding of cutting edge education law and policy issues. We have assembled a diverse group of presenters, with experience as leaders in schools and postsecondary institutions, as practicing attorneys, and as leaders in government. We will have two engaging plenary sessions—one focused on speech and expression in schools and colleges and another on charters schools. We will also have breakout sessions that cover topics tailored to elementary and secondary schools and to postsecondary institutions, including community colleges. Professional development credit will be available to both administrators and attorneys.

The conference will take place on June 14, 2019, at the University of Mississippi School of Law. The event is sponsored by The University of Mississippi Department of Leadership and Counselor Education, Department of Higher Education, and School of Law and the North Mississippi Education Consortium.
