School Law and Child Ad Law MCLE

Topic:  Special Education Rights of Court Involved Students with Disabilities


Speaker: Rachel Shapiro 


Time: 12:00 - 1:00 


Beginner Level

Brief Summary:  This CLE will provide participants with a basic understanding of special education law and a better understanding of when a court-involved youth may have a disability that requires school districts to provide special education services. The CLE will provide information on the protections students with disabilities have when facing expulsion from school.  The CLE will also provide information on how participants can make referrals to Equip for Equality, as well as what types of referrals are appropriate.

Bio of Rachel Shapiro: Rachel Shapiro has been an attorney at Equip for Equality since 2006.  She began as an Equal Justice Works Fellow sponsored by the Chicago Bar Foundation. Ms. Shapiro developed a Juvenile Justice Project providing representation to Cook County Juvenile Court involved youth with disabilities who are not receiving appropriate special education services or are facing expulsion from school.  Ms. Shapiro became a Supervising Attorney in 2014 and continues to represent court-involved youth with disabilities experiencing special education and discipline issues. She also manages the  Special Education Clinic Helpline at Equip for Equality, supervises interns and newer attorneys, and conducts trainings for community agencies and juvenile court personnel regarding the special education rights of students with disabilities.
