    Special Education Law contains relevant statutory excerpts and carefully edited reports of the leading special education cases, together with extensive explanatory materials and provocative questions for class discussion. The eBook also features practical exercises for home assignments or in-class projects. Two of the co-authors teach in law schools and have deep experience in special education law as well as allied subjects such as constitutional law, administrative law, civil procedure, federal courts, and general school law. Their background enables them to discuss the special education topics thoroughly and to draw connections to other parts of the law school curriculum. The third co-author, who is also a lawyer, teaches educational administration as well as special education law; that background enables him to add lessons on the real-world impact of the law on the daily work of the schools.

    A separate publication, Special Education Law: Statutes and Regulations [see the Related Product link below], contains relevant statutes and regulations.

    Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.
