Education

The professionals at Langlois lawyers are highly experienced in education law. For many years, our team has provided guidance to managers in this sphere who work in both public and private systems at every level of instruction (school boards, private colleges, CEGEPS and universities). Our professionals are involved in providing legal counsel to our clients as well as representing them before arbitration boards, administrative tribunals, and courts of law. They have even appeared before the Supreme Court of Canada on a number of occasions. The nature of our mandates also entails preparing legal opinions, interpreting laws and regulations, drafting and revising policies, and advising our clients on issues of human rights and freedoms, access to information, and civil liability. Whether preventing litigation, defusing a crisis, or defending the interests of an educational institution, we offer our clients practical solutions that leave them free to focus all of their efforts on fulfilling their mission. We are experts at interpreting the Education Act as we as the Act Respecting Private Education.
