Lane Powell provides a comprehensive range of services to colleges, universities and vocational schools, across a broad variety of disciplines.  Our attorneys are knowledgeable about traditional legal issues facing educational institutions, including administration and dean search committees, student disciplinary proceedings, student violence and risk prevention issues, college policies regarding student alcohol and drugs, and insurance coverage for college losses. We have experience regarding issues such as the impact of the Fair Labor Standards Act on unpaid student internships, the extent of judicial review for tenure decisions and student disciplinary proceedings, College Trustee By-Law revisions, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.  Our attorneys are well-versed in structuring foundations to protect college assets and resources, solving taxation issues for tax-exempt organizations on corporate governance and federal and state tax and charitable compliance issues, developing policies governing intellectual property created by faculty, faculty conflict of interest, outside employment by faculty, and analysis of online and international college programs.

Lane Powell also offers expertise in other areas that frequently impact educational institutions at all levels, including regulatory compliance; risk management; labor and employment issues; real estate and real estate finance; land use issues, including property acquisitions and mergers; litigation; public works and construction; public sector and nonprofit employee pensions and benefits; purchasing and procurement; immigration; taxation; open records law; and intellectual property.
