The University of Toledo Law Review's annual symposium focuses on education law this Friday in “From Kindergarten to College: Brainstorming Solutions to Modern Issues in Education Law." The symposium is a free, public event at the Law Center McQuade Law Auditorium from 8 a.m. to 4:20 p.m. Cribbed from the event brochure:
Four panels will discuss salient legal issues in education, including the development of modern disability law and the legal requirements of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans With Disabilities Act; affirmative action and desegregation; legal issues surrounding school safety; and the successes and failures of the conventional education model and its alternatives. Justice Judith French of the Supreme Court of Ohio, who argued Zelman v. Simmons-Harris, the landmark school voucher case, in the United States Supreme Court while in practice, will deliver the keynote address. The symposium is expected to draw attorneys who practice education, disability and administrative law; state and federal education agency employees; and educators and school administrators.
