Overview
This two-day symposium will provide school administrators and attorneys with the knowledge needed to make legally sound decisions while reducing liability, litigation, and other potential legal missteps. This year's symposium will be held at the Griffin Gate Marriott Resort and Spa in Lexington, KY.

From personnel matters to technology use, legal experts from Kentucky and beyond will cover the spectrum of school law topics as they apply to educators’ daily operations.

Sessions
General sessions will cover topics including: School safety and What You Need to Know in 2014 on Kentucky Law.

Additionally, concurrent education sessions will cover topics as diverse as the legal side of school finance, child custody issues, dealing with social media in a school setting, employee discipline issues, your questions on education law, terminations, KDE's top 5 of need to know, special education, and many others.

Sessions will provide a mixture of practical examples and useful advice on dealing with emerging legal issues, making it useful to attorneys and educators alike as they attempt to operate within the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution, federal and state laws, and school district policy.
