Last week, Whitt Law Senior Attorney Brian R. Bare joined a panel of other experienced attorneys to discuss a variety of unique and challenging situations regarding student discipline issues and students in guardianships. The panel addressed these issues from the perspective of the school districts as well as the students and their families. The seminar was designed to assist education law attorneys, special needs practitioners, family law attorneys, and educators.

The topics addressed during the seminar include:

  • How discipline issues should be handled, including procedural matters for special education students;
  • Alternatives to expulsion;
  • The creation of guardianships and related issues; and
  • The client relationship in education law cases.

The Illinois State Bar Association recorded the program, which it will make available for continuing legal education credits.
