Legal Assistance Fund

Students raising their hands in class

Since 1976, the Ohio School Boards Association Legal Assistance Fund has participated in litigation of statewide significance involving member boards of education. LAF is a trust fund established to provide supportive assistance to boards of education in cases or controversies of statewide significance primarily at the appellate level. With many school districts participating, the collective power of the small contributions becomes quite significant.
