Education

Lecture Hall

Our lawyers have represented a variety of educational institutions throughout West Virginia. We represent elementary schools, high schools, colleges and universities in a wide variety of litigation, compliance and labor and employment issues. Several of our attorneys obtained teaching licensure and higher education teaching experience. We have advised educational institutions regarding claims for failure to protect student confidentiality, negligence, failure to accommodate under the ADA, discriminatory discipline, failure to warn or conduct adequate background checks, and many other educational liability issues. Our Education team counsels institutions in many areas, including regulatory compliance issues; discrimination and harassment claims; disability and accommodation claims; employment litigation, including ADA, IDEA, FMLA, Title VII claims; premises liability and related tort issues and litigation; and student sexual misconduct and Title IX.

As part of our firm’s dedication to education, we also routinely contribute articles for the National Association of Elementary School Principals (“NAESP”).
