Special Education Eligibility: A Pro Bono Training to Assist Children with Disabilities in the Public School System

Children with disabilities often struggle to meet age appropriate educational milestones and require additional special education services in school to achieve fundamental skills necessary to graduate and to be prepared for postsecondary education, independent living, and future employment. Advocates will learn how to navigate the law relating to special education eligibility and to utilize evaluations to help students with disabilities obtain special education services. At the conclusion of the training, participants will be given the opportunity to join a growing panel of pro bono attorneys, who, with ongoing training and mentoring, will assist children in special education eligibility matters.
 
The creation of this special education pro bono panel is a new initiative of JustChildren, disAbility Law Center of Virginia, Greater Richmond Bar Foundation and the Young Lawyer’s Division of the Virginia Bar Association, with support from University of Richmond School of Law and William and Mary Law School’s PELE clinic.

When Equal is Not Fair: How Facially Neutral Housing Policies Compound Community Segregation

In the past few years, facially neutral housing policies have been challenged as continuing community segregation. Policies such as denying admission to anyone with a criminal record or requiring proof of U.S. citizenship or lawful immigration status, as well as inclusionary and exclusionary zoning practices, all tend to drive racial segregation. As part of the Carrico Center's popular Law Over Lunch series, Professor Carol Brown, with the University of Richmond School of Law, and Eric Dunn, with the Virginia Poverty Law Center, will examine how excluded communities are treated under the Fair Housing Act and what future legal challenges may look like and determine.
