The second edition of Practical Education Law for the Twenty-First Century is a one-volume treatise covering the real-life issues that confront education lawyers, administrators, school board members, and teachers on a daily basis. The goal of the volume is to concisely summarize the law in a given area, suggest trends and issues of concern, and provide practical advice to meet important legal and policy challenges. Other audiences for this book are law students, graduate students in education, and anyone interested in the field of education.

The book is organized into ten chapters, each dealing with a major substantive legal area. Within each chapter are a number of concise sub-sections that efficiently address a particular legal concern. Citations are nation-wide in scope and include references to federal and state case law, federal statutory law, and state statutory law. The highly readable text makes this book extremely accessible and useful for a non-legal audience, as well as for a legally trained reader.
