Creation of a National Organization for Law Students with Disabilities
From the announcement: The ABA's Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities, Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law, and Law Student Division are co-sponsoring a meeting January 27-28, 2007 at American University Washington College of Law in Washington, DC to create a new national organization for law students with disabilities. All interested law students are invited to attend this planning conference to create an organization that will provide an opportunity for fellowship and networking among law students, potential law students, and practicing attorneys with disabilities and will allow law students to advocate and educate nationally in the interests of law students with disabilities. Over the two day meeting attendees will identify the needs of a diverse student population, define organizational goals, draft a mission statement, create a structure and draft bylaws, and elect officers. Conference attendance is free and financial assistance is available to students to help offset travel costs associated with attending. For additional information or to register for the conference, call the American Bar Association Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law at (202) 662-1030.
