Lori M. Kopp is the assistant executive director of legal services and attorney with the Kansas Association of School Boards. Lori graduated from Washburn University School of Law in 2004 with honors. After graduation, she worked at a small law firm in Topeka, Kansas for six years prior to joining the legal department at KASB in 2011. In 2017, Lori became the General Counsel for Topeka Public Schools, but returned to KASB in 2022 to her current position.
Lori grew up in Lyons, Kansas, and comes from a family of educators, both teachers and administrators. Her background has made the practice of school law even more rewarding as she appreciates the opportunity to support school boards and districts in legal matters so they can remain focused on their students, staff, and community. Lori and her husband, Brian, live in Topeka and love to spoil their nieces and nephews (adorable pictures are available on request).
As an attorney with KASB, Lori assists with providing legal services, seminars, legal publications and other educational services to school board members, community college trustees, and educational service center members throughout the state of Kansas.
