Education Law Pro Bono Opportunity

LAF invites all interested attorneys to participate in a training for new volunteers in the LAF Education Law Pro Bono Project.

LAF’s Education Law Pro Bono Project refers cases for children with disabilities who need advocacy to obtain proper special education services. This year, we are also expanding the project to include representation of children who are being expelled from school. No experience in education law is required.

Commitment:
Volunteer attorneys are asked to take at least one case pro bono each year

Average case length:
Expulsions – 1-2 weeks intensive over 3-6 months, hearings are usually less than 1 day
Special education – 8-10 months

Training takes place:
Thursday, September 12, 2013
1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
LAF’s Offices 120 S. LaSalle Street, Room 1078
Seating is first come, first served and availability is limited to 40 people.

MCLE credit will be provided.
