Each clinical semester begins with intensive classes taught on-campus which may include weekend days.
The Adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (AIDD) Law Clinic students will actively advocate on behalf of clients with disabilities whose legal rights have been usurped. The clinic will simultaneously educate students while protecting disabled client’s rights. Students will learn the procedural, practical and ethical elements that arise as a result of discrimination in the areas of employment, education, government services, private business accommodations and housing, guardian advocacy, and guardianship counseling. Students will provide legal counseling and representation to assist clients in gaining and /or maintaining public benefits.
