James E. Young

Jim Young, Firm Principal, began his career in education as a high school teacher. Since becoming an attorney in 1992, he has exclusively represented public schools.

Jim is known statewide for his expertise in charter school board governance, employment law and labor negotiations. He is a frequent speaker on such topics for charter school governing boards and charter agencies statewide. Jim is also a Guest Lecturer in the CSU Dominguez Hills Charter and Autonomous Public Leadership Academy (CASLA Program on Employment and Labor Law). In Board governance, Jim frequently advises governing boards as to compliance with open meeting and conflict of interest laws and best practices for highly effective boards. In employment law, Jim has successfully represented charter schools in virtually all venues, including state and federal agencies and in the courts. Jim has also served as a chief negotiator representing charter schools throughout California in developing many of their first labor agreements in the state, and he recently assisted a charter school management organization in negotiating one of the first charter school labor agreements in the State of New York.

Jim graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government from the California State University at Sacramento, and a Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law.
