Suzanne Eckes, J.D., Ph.D. is a professor in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department at Indiana University. Dr. Eckes has published over 150 education law-related articles (e.g., American Educational Research Journal, Review of Research in Education, Teachers College Record, Peabody Journal, Educational Policy, Educational Administration Quarterly, Journal of School Leadership) and book chapters (e.g., Harvard Ed Press, Teachers College Press). She is a co-author or co-editor of several books, including Public School Law (7th ed., Pearson), Legal Rights of Teachers and Students (3rd ed., Pearson), Principals Teaching the Law (Corwin), Principals Avoiding Lawsuits (Rowman & Littlefield), Contemporary Legal Issues in Higher Education (3rd ed., Education Law Association), School Discipline and Safety, and the Principal’s Legal Handbook (3rd-5th ed., Education Law Association). Much of her research focuses on how civil rights laws influence education policy for historically marginalized populations in public schools.
