    Product Description


    Individuals with disabilities must often advocate for themselves or their family members to ensure that they are protected by both federal and Massachusetts laws from discrimination or other forms of abuse in employment, housing, and education. The demand for legal assistance in these areas of law continues to increase, and attorneys who handle these matters often provide guidance or direction that does not rise to the level of full representation but is nonetheless important to help an individual understand their rights and advocate effectively in settings ranging from a workplace, school, or living environment to an administrative forum or court. The faculty provide strategies, tips, and information to help guide attorneys in providing such assistance based on their professional experiences and years of successful legal advocacy on behalf of individuals with disabilities.
