Special Education Law And Advocacy Series (Selas) says
Building on past and current efforts to educate the community on special education law, the University of San Diego School of Law is excited to announce the new Special Education Law and Advocacy Series (SELAS). This program builds on the previous Special Education Advocacy Certificate program, with new curriculum meant not only to educate but also offer practical, hands-on experience in special education law and advocacy.

Appropriate for attorneys, paralegals, special education and other professionals, as well as parents, the series includes six law and practical training seminars, which may be taken individually or as a complete program. Each Saturday seminar is broken up into a morning and afternoon session with a one-hour lunch break. Offered over the course of six Saturdays, the seminars are taught by experienced special education attorneys as well as a licensed clinical psychologist. Participants leave each seminar with knowledge in special education law as well as practical training that gives them hands-on skills.

Registration is open now, and is available to anyone who wishes to enroll.
