This three-session webinar will feature education law in the Philippines and update all participants with the recent DepEd and CHED memorandum orders.

It is designed to help schools understand education law to protect themselves from torts and liabilities arising from lawsuits, and at the same time align their administrative and operating policies to existing government regulations. The lecture will discuss very important legal issues, special laws, updated cases, and solutions to problems normally encountered by schools. Whether you are planning to set up a school, maintain one, or expand its operation, this program is a must.

The course is also aimed at helping different stakeholders such as school owners, board trustees, administrators, teachers, employees, students, and parents, understand and enforce their rights in a school system. The lecture and best practices examples are applicable to pre-schools, K-12, TESDA accredited schools, colleges and universities both private and government educational institutions.
