O’Melveny Praised in Book About Charter School Movement in DC

October 17, 2014 In Josephine Baker’s recently published book, “Evolution and Revolution of DC Charter Schools,” the former executive director of the DC Public Charter School Board (PCSB) praised O’Melveny & Myers for having a “major impact on the charter sector’s development.” Baker explains that without the victories obtained by O’Melveny in key PCSB litigation, “the evolution of the DC Charter sector would certainly not be what it has become.”

O'Melveny has provided pro bono legal representation to PCSB since it first came into creation in 1997, helping the board develop administrative procedures in compliance with its governing statute, negotiate charter agreements, address labor issues, and handle litigation and public controversies.
