A team of Wright Lindsey Jennings attorneys services a wide range of needs for our education clients. We assist these clients with development of financing for facilities and academic programs, identification and recruitment of faculty and students, capital acquisitions, zoning and other development issues and organizational structuring and inter-institutional programming.

We also act as liaison with local governments, foundations and philanthropic organizations. Some of our higher education clients utilize our team as outside general counsel to advise on issues such as Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) compliance, human resources and employment matters, student disciplinary hearings and due process, policy development, legislative and lobbying work and general governance issues.

We regularly defend educational institutions in civil rights and employment discrimination lawsuits. Educational clients also benefit from our targeted Title 9 compliance training and investigation services. We also regularly prepare and prosecute federal trademark applications and U.S. patent applications for several colleges and universities and work alongside foreign counsel to protect intellectual property rights abroad.
