Attorney Thomas B. Mooney: Writing The Book On Education Law

Connecticut Law Tribune

October 20, 2008

Thomas B. Mooney was there in the 1960s and 1970s when fundamental changes in education law provided more rights to students and helped define the relationship between students and their schools. Gender equity, disabled students’ rights to an education, and the confidentiality of students’ records were among the issues addressed by lawsuits and legislation. At the time, Mooney, who is chair of the School Law Practice Group at Shipman & Goodwin, was just beginning his legal career in a practice area that was in its embryonic stage.
