McGown & Markling's School Law Hotline
Providing Hours of Complimentary Legal Service
The Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA) is continuing its strategic partnership with McGown|Markling, which provides legal services through the School Law HotlineSM to eligible educational institutions.
Participants in the School Law HotlineSM receive ten (10) pro bono - i.e., complimentary - hours of legal services per school year through the School Law HotlineSM. Any additional hours billed beyond these 10 pro bono hours will be billed at blended hourly rates depending on the nature of the legal services rendered - such as general school law work, collective bargaining negotiations, or property valuation matters. These hours may be used for any purpose including, but not limited to, special education, pupil services, school finance, governance, labor and employment, collective bargaining, in-services, and general matters.
