The University of La Verne will focus on special education law during its annual Law Review Symposium on April 6.
The event, titled “The Law and the Classroom: How Special Education and the Legal Field Intersect,” will be at the College of Law from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Topics include what it means to be a special education lawyer, transition services, and the future of special education law.
Presenters include Cynthia Vargas of Fagen, Friedman, and Fulfrost. She is a former special education teacher who has advised school districts on appropriate placements for students in special education. David Grey, a private practice attorney, will also present. Grey helped students with hearing impairments get better services in public schools through a case he brought to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
The event is open to the public, but will be of special interest to attorneys, educators, parents, and advocates for special needs children.
Attorneys may receive as much as 4.5 hours of continuing legal education credit by paying a nominal fee for the event. Information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
