Special Education Spring Legal Update - Free Webinar
2:30-4:30pm CT. Although the IDEA itself has not changed since 2004 and Section 504 has not changed in decades, there continues to be an enormous amount of litigation going on, as courts and federal agencies attempt to interpret and apply the provisions of these laws to individual cases. In this session, experienced special education attorney, Julie Weatherly, will update the audience on significant special education "legal happenings" during the past six months, including an overview of relevant court decisions and U.S. agency interpretations.
