About Roger Aronson

Presented by Roger Aronson, MESPA's legislative and legal counsel, this seminar is both relevant and interactive. Aronson is one of the most highly regarded school law experts in the state of MN and will provide you with the insight and knowledge you need to be effective and ethical in your work.

"Roger does a great job of helping us not only understand the changes in the law or legislation, he also helps us understand the background of the bill that was presented and the reasons behind them. This helps provide us with talking points when working through the legal changes we are expected to address in our schools." - Brian Franklin, Principal, Dassel-Cokato schools

MESPA provides the legal support elementary and middle level principals need to thrive in their role. For more information on Roger and MESPA's legal services, please visit our legal page here
