Supporting Leadership in Legal Advocacy for Public Schools
The Council of School Attorneys (COSA) provides information and practical assistance to more than 3,000 attorneys representing K-12 public school districts and state school boards associations.
Our mission is to support school attorneys in their representation of public school boards by providing leadership in legal advocacy for public schools. We encourage professional development and closer relationships between school attorneys and their school board clients through continuing education, online publications, writing and advocacy opportunities, and discussion forums.
Please read a letter to the COSA membership from Justin Petrarca, our 2015-2016 COSA Chair, as he welcomes you to a new year of COSA programming. In it, he outlines new opportunities available to members, COSA's support of legislative, legal and public advocacy efforts, and strengthening COSA’s role as the support structure for school attorneys who advocate on the ground for public schools every day.
