(New Britain, PA) - Partner Tom Warner of Sweet, Stevens, Katz & Williams will co-present a continuing legal education (CLE) seminar entitled “MCLE: The Nuts and Bolts of Disability Rights Laws in Public Schools,” hosted by the Berks County Bar Association on Friday, October 6, 2017 from 11:45 A.M. to 1:15 P.M. The event will take place at the bar association’s office at 544 Court Street in Reading, Pennsylvania. Attendees will receive 1 substantive CLE credit, and lunch will be served.
With co-presenter Jennifer M. Lukach Bradley, Esq., Warner will provide an overview of the federal statutes that require public schools to provide special education students with a variety of supports and services in schools and which afford more protections to special education students who violate school rules. The seminar will also provide important guidance to attorneys who advise and/or represent clients with children in public schools who have special education needs.
