Adams, Stepner attorney, Claire E. Parsons, has provided guidance to school leaders through her recently published article entitled Miranda & Student Interrogations: To Warn or Not to Warn (NSBA, Inquiry & Analysis, October 2013).  Writing on the use of Miranda warnings in a school setting, Ms. Parsons warns that school leaders and their legal counsel must be cautious when considering the distinction on when to provide warnings.  She writes …”Thought and attention to the procedural details of student questioning is therefore necessary to ensure that student rights are honored and school safety is preserved.”

Ms. Parsons practices in the firm’s Government Practice group, focusing a significant part of her practice on school law issues and representing school districts.  For link to her article, click here.
