Education Law in NC (ELNC)

ELNC is an online, subscription-based legal treatise that provides electronic access to information about laws and legal precedents that affect North Carolina public schools.

Now published by NCSBA, ELNC was first released in 1987 by the Principals Executive Program at the University of North Carolina.  ELNC chapters were written by some of North Carolina’s top education attorneys.

ELNC is designed to provide school board members and administrators with an overview of various school law issues.  Subscribers who log in to the ELNC website will find chapters on issues such as the power and authority of the local board of education, constitutional rights, student searches, teacher non-renewal and dismissal, religion and the public schools, and tort law.
