Education Law

Young Conaway brings together an experienced legal team to handle the variety of issues faced by public school districts, private and parochial schools, colleges and universities, nonprofit, and charter schools. 

We provide advice and representation in litigation to public school districts, private and parochial schools, colleges and universities, nonprofit, and charter schools on a broad range of legal issues, including:

  • special education law,
  • student discipline,
  • child protection and safe environment programs, 
  • school-related free speech,
  • Board governance and policy-making,
  • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests,
  • teacher termination hearings,
  • defense of teacher abuse and Child Victim Act (CVA) claims
  • employee discipline and discharge in accordance with the requirements of Delaware law,
  • collective bargaining,
  • grievance and interest arbitration,
  • construction law and bidding procedures,
  • land use and zoning,
  • financing of capital improvements.

Our attorneys emphasize preventive strategies to manage legal risks and avoid litigation. If litigation becomes necessary, however, our multi-disciplinary team of trial attorneys is highly experienced in representing schools and related institutions in judicial, administrative, arbitration, mediation, due process, and other legal proceedings.

We also regularly train school administrators and host a number of seminars throughout the year to keep our clients current on education-related legal requirements.
