The MASB Legal Trust Fund was established in 1975 to assist Michigan school boards involved in litigation having statewide significance. The Legal Trust Fund has granted assistance both in the way of financial support and amicus curie (friend of the court) briefs to help school districts at all levels of litigation, from the State Tenure Commission up to the Supreme Court.
With help of the Legal Trust Fund, boards of education can pursue cases they might otherwise have to settle because of the high costs of litigation. More importantly, every school board benefits when definitive answers are provided by the courts on complex legal questions affecting education in our state.
