The Encyclopedia of Education Law is a compendium of information drawn from the various dimensions of education law that tells its story from a variety of perspectives. The entries cover a number of essential topics, including the following:

  • Key cases in education law, including both case summaries and topical overviews
  • Constitutional issues
  • Key concepts, theories, and legal principles
  • Key statutes
  • Treaties (e.g., the Universal Declaration on Human Rights)
  • Curricular issues
  • Educational equity
  • Governance
  • Rights of students and teachers
  • Technology
  • Biographies
  • Organizations
In addition to these broad categories, anchor essays by leading experts in education law provide more detailed examination of selected topics. The Encyclopedia also includes selections from key legal documents such as the Constitution and federal statutes that serve as the primary sources for research on education law. At the same time, since education law is a component in a much larger legal system, the Encyclopedia includes entries on the historical development of the law that impact on its subject matter. Such a broadened perspective places education law in its proper context in the U.S. legal system.
