Part-Time Externship: Disability Rights/Advocacy

The Disability Rights Externship Seminar serves as a course for law students pursuing applied research projects at the intersection of public policy and disability law.  Students will gain an understanding of and apply legal and policy tools to recommend changes to current state and federal laws governing accessible spaces and environments. Students will be exposed to the varied issues that confront disability law advocates on a daily basis and learn skills they need to identify policy problems, engage in research and fact-finding to analyze the problems, and determine appropriate solutions to resolve the problems. Students will reflect on their experiences and incorporate the skills they are learning in group discussions.
