Legal Research Library Subscription

Learn more about our Legal Research Library subscription so you can get access to our online, searchable legal resources.

The Legal Research Library (LRL) is an online, searchable archive of valuable school law resources, many of which are not available anywhere else. Designed for board members, administrators, and school lawyers, the LRL includes:

  • A complete collection of TASB School Law Update Newsletters, dating back to 1988
  • Full-text decisions from the commissioner of education, dating back to 1995
  • Index of all past commissioner decisions, dating back to 1989
  • Amicus briefs filed by the TASB Legal Assistance Fund

To access the LRL, you need a subscription. 

The subscription year for the LRL runs from July to June. There are two versions of the subscription: one for school districts and one for school attorneys.

LRL School District Rate (including in-house district counsel) for 1-3 subscribers is $600. Additional individuals can be added to the subscription at a rate of $75 per person.

LRL access is available to districts with an Active TASB Membership.
