The Council of School Board Attorneys' (CSBA) Annual Seminar on School Law will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2024, at the MSBA Building in Ridgeland, MS.

The CSBA Annual Seminar has been a regular annual event for many of the state’s school board attorneys. It is essential to stay on top of issues that could potentially pose threats to your school district client, which is one of the reasons why the CSBA Seminar on School Law is the “go-to” resource for staying up-to-date on school legal matters. 

This year, topics will include:

  • What's Happening with Federal Law? Title IX, Employee Religious Speech, Special Education, FERPA, and Sexual Harassment
  • NSSA Update
  • What's New with Policy & Legislation?
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI)
  • Best Practices to Avoid Liability
  • and more

Attorneys can earn up to six (6) hours credit and one (1) hour of Ethics by remaining until the seminar adjourns. 

Board Members can earn up to seven (7) hours of credit (4 hours for attending the morning session and/or 3 hours for attending the afternoon session). 

$300 per person
