Whether operating in the non-profit or the for-profit space, education providers face a unique duality of legal challenges.  On one hand, educators must manage and meet the myriad of regulatory requirements which govern everything from student privacy to employee compensation.  On the other hand, these entities must also respond to the issues they face as businesses – whether selling or purchasing property; avoiding or managing liability; collecting debts; or responding to personnel concerns.

The attorneys in Obermayer’s Education Law Practice Group bring a wealth of knowledge to our education-based clients. We have experience working with an array of players throughout the industry, including public and private primary, secondary and post-secondary facilities; for-profit education providers; specialty and trade schools; religious institutions; and online educational content providers.
