What exactly is the Law Dawg's Ed Daily?

An annual digital subscription giving you access to  legal developments curated by Jim Walsh aka The Law Dawg.

A daily “Dawg Bone” highlighting and explaining legal developments
for the busy school administrator. Concise. Relevant. Timely.  Sometimes humorous. Direct from the Dawg to your device.

New content will be posted weekdays, excepting school holidays, breaks, and a short summer hiatus.

Jim Walsh graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 1975. In 1983, he was one of the three lawyers who founded the firm now known as Walsh Gallegos Kyle Robinson & Roalson P.C. From the beginning the focus of the firm was on serving public schools—helping the people who help the kids.

In his career of over 40 years, Jim has provided training to all of the Education Service Centers in Texas, numerous Texas statewide organizations, and hundreds of school districts. He is a regular presenter at the National School Boards Association (NSBA) Annual Conferences and at state conferences across the country, including New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Colorado. He is the co-author of The Educator’s Guide to Texas School Law, which is used as a textbook in many higher education programs. He is the author of “The Common Sense Guide to Special Education Law” and, most recently, “The Top Ten Things You Need to Know About Special Education”. He was the longtime author of the popular “Law Dawg” column in the Texas School Administrators’ Legal Digest and currently produces a daily digital blog, The Law Dawg’s Ed Daily. (www.edlawdawg.com). He has taught school law at Texas State, Baylor, and St. Edwards Universities.

Jim was recently selected to be a member of the AASA School District Attorney Committee (SDAC), an initiative created to help shape federal education policy and provide legal resources for superintendents and administrators. He is a former member of the Board of Directors for the NSBA Council of School Attorneys. In 2017, he was recognized by his peers in the School Law Section of the State Bar of Texas with the Kelly Frels Lifetime Achievement Award.
