Virginia Coalition for Students with Disabilities

Services for Attorneys

Continuing Legal Education

A major focus of the Legal Advocacy Center (LAC) is the sponsorship of high quality, low cost attorney trainings specifically designed for Virginia practitioners. We hope to have each program approved by the Virginia State Bar's Mandatory Continuing Legal Education Department (MCLE) as well as the Virginia Supreme Court's Guardian ad litem program.

Each program will be designed to help participants:

1. Develop an understanding of which laws and regulations impact the education of students with disabilities, which students qualify for services, and how a student's right to a free appropriate public education is further defined by court cases.

2. Develop an understanding of the scope and breath of special education and related services available to students declared eligible to receive such services.

3. Develop an understanding of the special provisions for school discipline involving a student with disabilities and protections for students qualifying, but not yet declared eligible for special education.

4. Develop an understanding of the various processes for resolving disputes concerning special education issues.
