Parker Poe represents education institutions in every type of legal matter that comes before them. Our understanding of the unique needs of schools and colleges comes from years of experience and a cross-discipline practice which includes attorneys who have deep experience in specialized legal areas that are important to education clients. Our clients have included every type of education institution – public and private colleges and universities, K-12 public school districts, private schools and charter schools. In 2022, Parker Poe added 17 experienced education attorneys to its Atlanta office, making this practice one of the largest and most active in the Southeast.
We have a politically savvy team that is a close observer of the political, regulatory and cultural forces that impact today's schools as never before, and we help clients navigate sensitive issues. The team interacts with local, state and federal regulatory agencies, administrative tribunals and federal courts, and influences education policy and shares best practices through thought leadership. Together, we devise practical and flexible solutions for the increasingly complex matters that affect operations today and our education client’s success tomorrow so that they can retain focus on their core mission of educating students.
