LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 9, 2012) — The University of Kentucky's chief legal adviser, William E. Thro, on Saturday will become president of the Education Law Association, one of the nation's premiere sources of information on education law.

           

Thro, who became UK's new general counsel Oct. 15, has been a member of the association's board of directors since 2008. The organization has around 1,000 members, including professors who teach education law, administrators in both K-12 and higher education, and attorneys who represent educators at all levels. Thro will officially become president at the association's conference in Hilton Head, S.C., this weekend.

 

"I am honored that my colleagues have entrusted me with the leadership of a unique organization that brings together attorneys, academics, and administrators to debate and discuss the legal issues that confront education," Thro said.

 

Thro, 49, has more than 20 years' experience in higher education, most recently as university counsel at Christopher Newport University, a liberal arts institution in Newport News, Va. Previously, Thro served as solicitor general for three attorneys general in the Commonwealth of Virginia. In that position, he was a policy adviser to the attorney general and the top litigator in arguing before federal and state courts.
