Mission: The Disability Law Center provides legal advocacy on disability issues that promote the fundamental rights of all people with disabilities to participate fully and equally in the social and economic life of Massachusetts.
Programs: The Disability Law Center received a grant from the Massachusetts Bar Foundation to host 6 conferences to discuss special education law, specifically discipline issues. These 6 trainings are held in cities around Massachusetts and feature a presentation in the morning and one-to-one clinics in the afternoon. The clinics are an opportunity for parents of children with special education needs to meet with an attorney from the Disability Law Center. The attorney will answer some basic questions from the parent and determine if more time and full representation is necessary. These trainings are intented to reach out to individuals who speak English as a second language.
