School boards must exercise their responsibilities in an increasingly complex legal environment. The Nebraska Association of School Boards understands this reality. The Association offers its members free access to an attorney who will answer basic legal questions. NASB's legal counsel, Jennifer Jorgensen, aims to provide general legal information and high-quality workshops to Nebraska school boards, educational service unit boards and administrators. NASB's legal counsel is available to visit about day-to-day legal questions such as bargaining, boardsmanship, conflict of interest, legislative updates, open meetings, public records, and when legal counsel should be hired. NASB's legal counsel cannot provide specific legal advice and does not act as a member's legal counsel. The services offer by the NASB legal counsel are advisory in nature only and are not intended to replace the advice of a district or ESUs's school law attorney.
The Nebraska Association of School Boards also offers an array of seminars and workshops that help school boards and administrators understand their legal environment, to keep up-to-date with new and emerging legal developments, and to anticipate, prevent, and overcome legal challenges.
