Special Education Advocacy for At-Risk Children and Youth

Monday, December 8, 2014 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

Join the EdLaw Project for a training on the basics of special education advocacy and take a pro bono case. Success in school leads to success in life, yet most low-income families are unable to access legal representation when it comes to helping their children with disabilities receive the support the need from school. After completing the training, you can join a pro bono panel of attorneys providing education advocacy to low-income children in matters of special education.  As a member of our pro bono panel, you can help families and make a real difference in their children’s trajectory in school and in life.

The EdLaw Project is an initiative of the Children's Law Center of Massachusetts and The Committee for Public Counsel Services - Youth Advocacy and Children & Family Law Divisions. Law students are welcome to attend but will be unable to accept pro bono cases.
