Why you should be part of this annual conference

ELA conference participants represent a diverse constituency of law and education professors, attorneys, school administrators, consultants, graduate students, government employees, and top authors on education law. This spectrum allows you to benefit from face-to-face meetings with people offering a wide range of perspectives on the subjects important to your knowledge base.

“Being surrounded by so many bright scholars, attorneys and administrators who share a passion for education law has played a significant role in my professional development and will continue to serve this role for many years to come,” said a recent conference attendee.

Attorneys can earn valuable end-of-year CLE credits in one place, for a very reasonable cost. Non-attorney registrants may receive certificates of attendance.
