Sweet Stevens Attorneys to Present Highlight of PAPSA Conference
(New Britain, PA) – Attorneys from the Education Law firm of Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams LLP are slated to speak at one of the featured programs of the 2016 conference of the Pennsylvania Association of Pupil Service Administrators (PAPSA), scheduled for April 13-15 at the Eden Resort in Lancaster, PA.
PAPSA is the only organization in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania specifically devoted to issues concerning pupil services programs in schools. Members of the organization have supervisory or administrative responsibility in fields such as counseling, health, psychology, home and school visitation, social work, special education, gifted education and student assistance.
This year’s conference is entitled “Pupil Services: Mental Health Matters,” and educational sessions will focus on adverse childhood experiences, mental health matters and suicide prevention, which will include a special appearance by a best-selling author, documentary filmmaker, and award-winning global speaker who himself is the survivor of a suicide attempt. The entire last day of the conference is reserved for the firm’s annual “Paul Stevens Memorial Legal Seminar,” featuring attorneys Jane Williams, Sharon Montanye, Tom Warner and Shawn Lochinger. Now in its 15th year, this seminar, which addresses various legal issues impacting special education and pupil services, is called “the highlight of the conference” in PAPSA’s event materials.
Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams, LLP was formed in 1995 by nine experienced education lawyers who created the first private law practice in Pennsylvania dedicated entirely to Education Law. Since then, the firm has grown to 16 attorneys who represent over 290 school and municipal entities as Solicitors or as Special Counsel in more than 50 counties throughout Pennsylvania.
