The Project

As an AmeriCorps Legal Fellow at the Louisiana Bar Foundation, I work in partnership with Advocacy Center on Special Education issues. I represent the interests of students who require additional accommodations to ensure they receive an adequate education. I am also bringing trainings to rural areas to inform parents of children with disabilities about their children’s educational rights. I am also recruiting, training and managing law students, enabling some of them to speak with parents to help identify potential educational issues.
