Adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (AIDD)
Law Clinic Community Roundtable and Conference

Legal, Health, and Social Vulnerabilities in the AIDD Community:

Reflections on the Impact of COVID-19 and Emergency Planning

DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this event is to foster discussion on the legal, social, and governmental responses to individuals within the AIDD community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Critical examination and evaluation of these responses will strengthen our insight and knowledge of the particular vulnerabilities faced by individuals within the AIDD community and help advance a more meaningful approach to emergency planning.

Join NSU Law as we host the Third AIDD Law Clinic Roundtable and Conference. Judges, legal professionals, advocates, and members of the community impacted by intellectual and developmental disabilities, will come together again to network, learn, and plan strategic responses to address the legal needs of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year’s Roundtable will include a CLE opportunity with confirmed speakers from the local bench and bar.
