M.Jur. Education Law Concentration

The M.Jur. in Education Law is the perfect academic program for someone involved in education administration. An education administrator may provide advice in matters pertinent to education law, such as student residency, governance issues, the principal and teacher selection and retention process, student discipline, special-education law, tuition fraud and in the development of educational policies.

This demands an understanding of an ever-changing public policy scheme and how to track, monitor and alter existing plans and curriculum appropriately.

“Education law applies to our lives from cradle to grave.”

-Albert Kauffman
