David Rohrer Recognized for Achievements in School Law and Upcoming Events

We are pleased to announce that, on Friday, October 3, 2014, Boardman & Clark LLP attorney David Rohrer was presented with the 2014 George Tipler Award for Distinguished Service in School Law. The Tipler Award is presented annually at the Wisconsin School Attorneys Association (WSAA) membership meeting to an individual nominated by school officials or member attorneys. The award was established to honor the efforts of former Wisconsin Association of School Boards’ Executive Director George Tipler, who initiated the founding of WSAA and was a long-serving advocate for the boys and girls of Wisconsin.

We are proud that the WSAA Board of Directors chose David for this award. He is a valuable member of our School Law Practice Group, with a long commitment to school law and unique expertise in various areas, including litigation, civil rights, student expulsions, special education, insurance defense, and employment law. David has presented to numerous groups on important school law topics ranging from public sector employee speech rights and employment discrimination to student discipline. He has also been a frequent author of Legal Notes” and the Legal Comment,” published by the Wisconsin Association of School Boards, and also co‑authored the chapter on school law for the State Bar’s Annual Survey of Wisconsin Law for over fifteen years. David has also been named in Madison Magazine as one of Madison’s Top Lawyers in the areas of labor and employment law, civil rights law, and appellate litigation; was inducted as Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America (Trial Lawyer Honorary Society); and has been frequently selected by his peers to be included in the Best Lawyers in America in employment litigation.

David joins two other attorneys with roots at Lathrop & Clark LLP who have earned this recognition. James Clark was one of several WSAA founding members that received the Tipler Award in 1994. Mike Julka also earned the award in 2008.
