The Ohio School Boards Association’s Legal Division offers a variety of resources to help school boards understand their responsibilities in an increasingly complex legal environment. In addition to providing technical assistance and consultation services to Ohio's school boards, the division provides legal information to school board members on school law issues; keeps up-to-date with new and emerging legal developments; provides customized workshops; oversees OSBA’s Legal Assistance Fund; and facilitates both the Ohio Council of School Board Attorneys and the Council of Urban Board Solicitors.

To expedite access to the division and increase service to its members, OSBA has established a toll-free number that can be used to directly access OSBA’s Division of Legal Services. OSBA members may call the division at (855) 672-2529 or (855) OSBA-LAW. OSBA’s attorneys do not provide legal advice, but can provide legal information and access to legal resources to boards of education and the districts they represent.
