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 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 basic working knowledge of the subject matter.
Faculty: Kevin McDowell (Deputy Attorney, Office of the Attorney General)
Cost is free for those who volunteer to work five hours preparing for and attending a family’s IEP case conference. This seminar will include significant written and electronic reference material for future use.
CLE begins at 8:15 AM and will conclude at 9:45 AM
