Legal Remedies to Keep New Jersey Students Safe at School

School is intended to be a safe place for students to obtain the education they need and deserve. Unfortunately, thousands of children are ridiculed or bullied every day. The New Jersey Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights (P.L. 2010, Chapter 122) protects all students from all types of bullying. This includes bullying that takes place in or on school facilities, outside of educational locations, and cyberbullying. If your child is a victim of bullying, speak with a New Jersey school bullying attorney by contacting Zeff Law Firm. We have represented clients in the area for more than two decades.

Stopping Bullying Incidents in Schools

Bullying includes repeated verbal or physical behaviors over a period of time. Although many people consider physical abuse to cause the most harm, the truth is even subtle verbal aggressions, rumors, and excluding behaviors are equally harmful. Bullying has even resulted in countless suicides among victims who see death as their only way out of their seemingly impossible situation.

Some common types of bullying in schools include:

  • Pushing
  • Tripping
  • Intimidation
  • Starting rumors
  • Verbal exchanges
  • Excluding peers
  • Cyberbullying

Several states, including New Jersey, have passed anti-bullying laws intended to provide additional protections to victims of bullying. If you are wondering how the law applies to your situation, our school bullying lawyers in New Jersey can assess your situation during a free consultation to advise you of your rights.
