August 2, 2018: Seventh edition of one of ELA’s most popular titles now available in print.
The edition updates and adds further information to six previous editions of Legal Problems of Religious and Private Schools, by ELA Past President Ralph Mawdsley, first published in 1983 and, most recently, in 2012.
Under the editorial leadership of Charles J. Russo (lead editor) and Steve Permuth (editor), the new edition will feature changes beyond a slightly altered title. New chapters added to the traditional core of the text include the history of religious and private schools, state aid, school finance, and emerging issues.
Leaders and advisors of religious, private, or other nonpublic schools will find this book helpful in taking preventive measures to keep their schools out of court.
