"There are three good reasons to be a teacher--June, July and August." - Author Unknown

Well it looks like August is almost over and you know what that means...back to school time! More than just shopping for the latest clothes and buying books, did you know that there are a lot of legal issues parents and students should consider when preparing for the upcoming school year? Here at FindLaw, we have been working hard to make sure that all your legal bases are covered and you and your children start school on the right foot.

Drawing on our legal expertise to create a lot of the great back to school content for our readers, many of our writers and editors also draw on their own experience -- as parents. Long before the school bell chimed, our team put together a calendar to make sure that we were not only covering the issues most important to you, but that we were getting them to you in the format you most use and enjoy.

From blogs to newsletters to articles, we work hard to make sure that all our information is timely and relevant. A lot of this comes from personal experience. "It starts with an idea on how to reach the FindLaw audience. Then the content teams find the best places and ways to carry it out," says Editorial Blogs Editor Adam Ramirez." Next, social media and marketing teams leverage and get it out there in front of people in various formats--via Facebook, email, LinkedIn, etc. The teams help each other in different ways to make sure the best content gets in front of the right audiences."

Some of the big topics of discussion in our content meetings this year have been school bullying, emergency school texting, student athlete injuries and other trending issues that are new since the last school year. We also have a robust educational law section that you should bookmark as a resource throughout the year.

So be sure to check out all the great content we have to offer and good luck with the school year!
