Charter School Law Practice: Clients
John Cairns Law Professional Association

John Cairns works with corporations, foundations and other groups that are interested in establishing non-profit, educational tax-exempt organizations (TEOs).
Here is a sampling of John’s work:

  • John has assisted hundreds of parents, teachers and foundations who have formed charter schools in most states where charter schools are permitted.

  • John was partner and general counsel to Community Learning Centers, the recipient of a $15 million federal grant to prove that charter schools could work. The grant was funded by the New American Schools Development Corporation, an organization supported by Fortune 200 companies and major private foundations. This study was the first of its kind—resulting in the successful launch of the U.S. charter school movement.

  • John has counseled for-profit companies in the business of managing public schools. His clients include the largest such business in the United States.
