Civil Rights Volunteer Opportunity

The Kienan Ellis Educational Project

Attorneys needed to represent students in school discipline hearings to ensure equitable and appropriate educational outcomes. This is an opportunity to exercise your trial advocacy skills while also ensuring that a student who may need additional services is not wrongfully excluded from school or access to other necessary services.

 

  • Ensure due process is provided and inaccurate allegations are disproven.

  • Ensure that educational plans for disabled students are followed.

  • Facilitate a healthy and timely return to school for your student client.

  • Advocate for and identify additional social and educational supports to help prevent future exclusionary discipline.
