Federal Public School Law Guidebook CoverWritten by the NSBA legal team and produced in collaboration with Lexis-Nexis, The Federal Public School Law Guidebook provides an overview of federal law affecting public school operations and policy development in many areas, including civil rights, employment, special education, and more.

Written in easy-to-understand Q&A format, this new desk resource is written in plain language, with legal citations to assist school lawyers. The Guidebook benefited from thoughtful editing by COSA members and Derek Black, professor of law at the University of South Carolina School of Law. It complements state-level texts produced by NSBA member state associations, such as School Law, produced by the New York State School Boards Association, now in its 39th edition. 

The Federal Public School Law Guidebook is now available from Lexis-Nexis in hard copy (softbound) and electronic form. Order yours online at the Lexis-Nexis storeNSBA/COSA members can save 20%! Please email us at memberservices@nsba.org, or check your latest member newsletter for the code!
