School and Higher Education

As one of Wisconsin’s largest and most experienced school law practices, Davis|Kuelthau’s School and Higher Education Team has proudly served districts statewide for more than 45 years.

Leveraging our combined 230 years of service, we understand that a school district is a complex institution with many distinct responsibilities. We work closely with every school district and higher education client to help them balance their obligations as an employer, a workplace, a social services agency, a financial institution, and a governmental body. And our experience with constituent and public relations means that we can account for school districts’ need to communicate effectively with the public on almost everything they do.
