Thousands of children in Central Indiana face extra hurdles in education because of physical, cognitive or emotional/behavior challenges. Federal and state laws entitle all children to a free and appropriate public education, and some children need an Individualized Education Program (IEP) to ensure that they receive the appropriate education for their ability. This session, offered by the Joseph Maley Foundation, will train attorney volunteers so they will be able to help families of students with challenging special education issues that require litigation.
This is an advanced 401-level course designed to train attorneys to litigate disputed matters at the administrative level or in court. Ideally, attendees will have already attended a previous CLE session offered by the Joseph Maley Foundation on IEPs or otherwise have some working knowledge of the subject matter.
