‘Brainstorming Solutions to Modern Issues in Education Law’ topic of Oct. 25 symposium

Education experts will convene at The University of Toledo College of Law on Oct. 25 to address the legal and practical challenges facing the nation’s schools today.

The free, public event, titled “From Kindergarten to College: Brainstorming Solutions to Modern Issues in Education Law”, is sponsored by The University of Toledo Law Review and will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:20 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, in the McQuade Law Auditorium.

Four panels will discuss salient legal issues in education, including the development of modern disability law and the legal requirements of IDEA, Section 504, and the ADA; affirmative action and desegregation; legal issues surrounding school safety; and the successes and failures of the conventional education model and its alternatives. Justice Judith French of the Supreme Court of Ohio, who argued Zelman v. Simmons-Harris, the landmark school voucher case, in the United States Supreme Court while in practice, will deliver the keynote address.

“The annual Law Review Symposium always strives to address a current legal and social topic,” said Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the College of Law, “and this year’s symposium, with its sterling lineup of speakers, promises to contribute to progress in a vital field of public concern.”

The symposium is expected to draw attorneys who practice education, disability, and administrative law, state and federal education agency employees, as well as educators and school administrators.
