Join Ashley Sizemore, of the New York Legal Assistance Group’s Special Education Unit (NYLAG SEU), and Columbia's Education Law & Policy Society to learn the basics of special education law.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act is one of the most litigated federal statutes and has been at the center of recent developments in the special education law landscape. As well as discussing the law, Ashley will present the work that the NYLAG SEU does to protect the procedural and substantive rights of New York City students. Lunch will be served.
