Education Rights Clinic

The Education Rights Clinic partners with Public Counsel to provide legal intakes for parents advocating for their children in the public school system. Participants have the opportunity to explore every aspect of education law, from special education to enrollment to the rights of bilingual students. They will also learn to read and analyze education record and will sharpen their legal interviewing skills through practical training and on-the-job coaching offered by the Public Counsel attorneys. Additionally, volunteers may have the opportunity to pilot a new model of representing students in disciplinary hearings. Public Counsel's intake nights are held on the first Tuesday of every month, and we ask every participant to commit to at least two intakes a semester.
