Education Advocacy Clinic

Students in the Education Advocacy Clinic work with graduate students from School of Education’s Educational Psychology Department to advocate for the educational rights of children with disabilities in the public school system. Students also have the opportunity to participate in the law school’s innovative Kids’ Court School, which educates child witnesses in Clark County court cases about the judicial process in order to reduce their system-induced stress. The clinic helps law students learn to work collaboratively with professionals in other disciplines, to advocate effectively in school disciplinary and other administrative proceedings, and to utilize research from other disciplines to develop best practices for interviewing child clients and witnesses.
