Fifteenth Edition of Illinois School Law book
answers legal questions of educators and laymen

A new edition of the popular Illinois School Law Survey has been published by the Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB).

Authored by noted school attorney Brian Braun, it serves as a convenient reference tool for common school law issues, and is available in both print and digital versions. Its question-and-answer format allows readers to find answers to questions facing or posed by school superintendents, principals, school boards, and the general public.

The book has been updated bi-annually since 1990 to stay current with changes in state and federal laws, and reflect the impact of new court cases relevant to school law. In the Fifteenth Edition, answers are based on legislation and court decisions as of January 1, 2018, and administrative rules and regulations current as of December 15, 2017.

Key features that enable readers to quickly find what they need include a Table of Contents listing broad topics covered in each chapter, a Quick Reference Index with subjects of more narrow focus, and a Table of Court Cases compiling all court decisions cited in the book.

The digital version also contains links to statutes, regulations, court decisions, and more.
