School Districts

Ancel Glink has represented school districts through the unprecedented growth of the 1940s and the 1950s, the social turmoil of the 1960s, the increase of government regulation and employee awareness of the 1970s and 1980s and the financial difficulties of the past three decades.

Creative and innovative approaches to problem solving are what these difficult and constantly changing circumstances demand and what the firm's long and varied experience makes possible. We represent school districts as their general attorney, in litigation, and as counsel on special matters, including advising districts on employment matters and assisting in collective bargaining negotiations.

In addition, our firm currently serves as chief defense attorney for several educational self- insurance pools which keeps the firm in constant contact with the problems faced by more than 100 Illinois school districts. One of our partners is the founding General Editor and current Co-Editor of the two volume handbook published by the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education entitled "Illinois School Law."
