EDUCATION LAW AND POLICY

Education law and Policy is the legal discipline covering all issues pertaining to schools, from kindergarten through higher education. Historically, attorneys practicing education law have worked toward expanding access to a high-quality education for all children, as well as providing for greater access to higher education. But this practice area has expanded to include issues such as students' rights; teachers' rights; school safety; discrimination; conduct and discipline; special education; curriculum; and education options such as homeschooling and charter schools.

Together with "The European Association for Education Law and Policy" we already publish many years books and a Journal (International Journal on Education Law and Policy (IJELP)). The editors provided many interesting materials on all levels of education.

Below you will find the recent books that we published.

RECENT TITLES:


Introduction to Law and Rights in Education
Introductory Textbook on Law and Rights for Students in Teacher Training and Educational Sciences
Gracienne Lauwers (ed)

ISBN (softcover) : 9789462405622

 

Written by an international interdisciplinary consortium, the ‘Introductory Textbook On Law and Rights for Students in Teacher Training and Educational Sciences’ combines information about the features of education systems and education law from a comparative and European perspective for students and readers approaching this subject for the first time with online support.

Religious and Ideological Rights in Education
Judicial Perspectives from 32 Legal Systems
Pablo Meix Cereceda & Jan de Groof (eds.)
ISBN (softcover) : 9789462404069

 

This book seeks to provide a panorama of the issues arising from pluralism in the education system and of judicial responses to them around the globe. In it, thirty-four authors representing many different legal cultures have selected and commented the most significant judicial decisions in each of the jurisdictions analysed. The topics addressed include religious and cultural symbols; faith-based, religious, and citizenship education; freedom of teaching and scientific freedom; homeschooling; authorization, funding and other matters concerning denominational and private schools, among other legal disputes. The reader will easily sense many different ideological orientations throughout the book’s thirty-seven chapters, which is only the result of pluralism itself and of scientific freedom. Nevertheless, the editors believe that all of the authors have inherently favoured the desire to understand the challenges of pluralism and to convey knowledge that is relevant for a public debate rather than defending their own particular point of view. Indeed, facilitating debate might be considered to be the best achievement of a publication of this kind.


JOURNAL

The International Journal for Education Law and Policy (IJELP) provides a critical review of contemporary developments in education law. It combines analysis, commentary and documentation on national education legislation and European and international developments in education. The Journal gives high priority to articles, which provide a comparative perspective and offer a link between law and policy issues. Apart from scholarly articles reviewing the implementation of and new developments in educational legislation at the national, regional, European, and international levels, IJELP features special thematic reports and contains special country reports.

The articles are subject to peer review by independent referees. Published on behalf of the European Association for Education Law and Policy, in cooperation with US-ELA, SAELPA (South African Education Law and Policy Association), LEAGUE OF EDUCATION LAW (Russian Federation), ANZELA (Australia and New Zealand Education Law Association), CAPSLE (Canadian Association of the Practical Study of Law in Education), with the support of UNESCO and supra-national and international organizations.
