Carmody’s Education lawyers advise schools, colleges, universities, and other academic institutions for success in this competitive setting.
We collaborate with clients to understand their goals and identify and proactively address potential problems before they become significant legal issues. By taking this approach, schools and other educational institutions can avoid the disruption and expense of a lawsuit. However, when litigation is unavoidable, we bring to bear the full power of our trial department to represent clients in hearings, arbitrations, bench trials, jury trials, and state and federal administrative agencies and courts.
We provide advice on a wide range of education issues including employment advice and training, legal compliance, student disciplinary issues, general transactional matters, construction, sexual abuse, and misconduct, governance, as well as financing and issues related to tax-exempt status.
