Book Title: Illinois School Law Survey 2014-2016
Publisher: Illinois Assn of School Boards
Author: Brian A. Braun
Authored by School Attorney Brian Braun, Illinois School Law Survey is a convenient guide for answering the school legal questions of educators and laymen. The Survey presents answers to more than 1,600 questions in 27 chapters, along with a list of the statutes, rules and court cases on which the answer is based.
The book's popularity stems in part from the guidance it provides in searching for state or federal laws. In addition to an extensive table of contents, a "quick reference index" offers a detailed listing of subjects arranged alphabetically with links to specific questions and answers in the 27 chapters.
With the new edition, questions and answers in all 27 chapters have been updated to reflect legislation and court decisions from the past 24 months (to January 1, 2014) . . . and many questions have been added to cover new statutes and court decisions.
Each copy of the Law Survey comes with an "All-in-One" legal reference - a CD ROM version that features the full text of the book plus quick links to the statutes, regulations and court decisions cited in the book. The CD can be run with any standard Web browser and is ready for loading on any IBM-compatible PC or Apple Macintosh computer. The CD contains all of the cited court cases and federal laws, along with Internet links to state statutes, State Board of Education rules, decisions of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board and policies of the Illinois High School Association.
A table of court cases arranged in alphabetical order by name of plaintiff makes it easy to find questions pertaining to each case, and the CD provides the full text of the court decision itself.
