Education Advocacy Project

The Kathryn A. McDonald Education Advocacy Project (EAP) provides educational advocacy that enables abused and neglected clients to secure services addressing educational and developmental needs. Working with the Project staff, pro bono lawyers engage in multiple levels of legal advocacy - factual development and case documentation, negotiation of an appropriate service plan, implementation oversight, and representation at an administrative hearing. EAP volunteers work closely with trial attorney staff as well to assist in courtroom advocacy as necessary. Both corporate and litigation associates work effectively in this practice.
