Advanced Youth and Education Advocacy Clinic
The Youth and Education Law Project: Advanced provides an opportunity for students who have already successfully completed the Youth and Education Law Project to continue their advocacy work and/or to pursue a discrete project related to educational equity advocacy. Examples of projects include policy research on specific topics (e.g., the provision of mental health services to youth with disabilities in the schools, the impact of school discipline policies on youth of color, or equal educational opportunities for English Language Learners); investigation and preparation for impact litigation; and community education and outreach on a specific education-related issue. All projects will be jointly designed by the instructor and the advanced student. Advanced students also continue to participate in the Clinic's discussion of cases during case rounds.
