The interaction of issues of law and schooling are becoming more
pronounced by the day as our society continues to witness significant and rapid socio-political and economic changes. In an age that is globally infused with the concern for individual rights, there is of recent an emergence of local court cases as a confrontation of school house authority. In Nigeria, this is a post-1970 phenomenon and discussion on the same in the academic literature is scanty. It is against this background that this paper discusses pertinent legal issues in educational management in the country.
