Education Attorney Jobs
Jobs as education attorneys are critical to our society because they are in place to keep our educational system a fair, safe and equitable place for students to learn.

There are many educational laws put in place to protect the interests of students, educators and administrators, but the primary focus is often on the needs of the students, who do not have the experience or ability to advocate for themselves.

Education attorneys specialize in this field because they focus solely on education laws and how to enforce current laws and implement new laws.

Their primary goal is to advocate for students who have faced discrimination or another barrier preventing them from receiving the same level of education as their peers. This may be access to education, lessrestrictive environment settings for students with disabilities, and the power of the school district as a whole.Other issues may look at the legality of home schooling, alternative schooling and the actual school day.

A good education attorney is aware of all the school polices as well as local, state and federal laws and how to apply these laws in school systems. He or she should also be knowledgeable about a variety of disabilities as well as abilities in students. There should also be a degree of empathy in working with students and parents as well as being fair with educators at the same time.

Often, education attorneys begin as a teacher who then goes to law school. These former teachers are naturally qualified because they have been in the front lines of the classroom and know the many issues that can come up in a school day, particularly in the life of students with disabilities. Parents of students with disabilities may also become interested in this legal avenue because they may have dealt with access to education issues themselves.

Regardless, an education attorney needs to complete undergraduate school with a BA as well as the requisite three year law school graduation with a juris doctorate degree. Additionally, these individuals need to successfully pass the bar exam in their state.

Salaries for attorney education jobs vary greatly and are dependent on the state the attorney works in, the organization they work for and the level of experience the attorney has.

Legal Education: Shifting the Paradigm

In light of the economic downturn, technological advancements, and the many resulting legal issues regarding privacy, financial regulation, intellectual property, the outsourcing of legal work for a lower cost, and the manner in which business is conducted in an increasingly global marketplace, the world appears to be changing, seemingly, by the nanosecond. Law, legal education and the legal profession have oft been criticized for being unable to keep pace with these changes.

Scenario of Legal Education

During recent school terms, record numbers of students were enrolled in law schools in the U.S. and Canada. In 1975, some 122,492 students crowded the class rooms of U.S. law schools.

Law Camps and Other Places of Legal Education

Summer prelaw camps have been designed in imitation of the computer, basketball, and music camps that have proliferated in recent years. They offer from one to seven weeks of summer programs designed to provide information about law school, legal practice, or both. Some are residential and provide living accommodations, usually on a college campus. Others resemble day camps; their activities may be held mostly in the evening and they do not provide living accommodations. Typical activities at prelaw camps include moot court competitions, computer training (in the handling of WESTLAW and similar legal research software), field trips to courts and law firms, programs of speakers, preparation training for the LSAT, and the like. Law camps do what prelaw clubs do, and therefore may be valuable for students whose campuses lack those important organizations. They present the information systematically, and without the need for the students to do the organizational work, in a short period of time during which you are surrounded by similarly oriented students with no distractions. But some law camps also do what no prelaw club does: they offer real or simulated legal coursework, to provide a realistic taste of law school and to prepare people for the challenges they will face there. Some prelaw camps are run by individual law schools. McGeorge Law School of the University of the Pacific, for example, offers a five-week program on its campus in Sacramento. Your prelaw adviser should have information about programs near your campus.
