The Disability Law Center (DLC) is a private, non-profit public interest law firm providing free legal assistance and information to people with disabilities throughout Massachusetts. DLC is also the designated Protection and Advocacy Agency (usually referred to as the P & A of NAPAS) for people with disabilities in the Commonwealth of MA.
The legal advocacy work that I do is funded by the Bart Gordon Fellowship of Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation,(MLAC). The two-year fellowship project is aimed at providing advocacy to ensure educational services to youth with mental health disabilities who are institutionalized.
During law school I participated in two clinics: Administrative Law - U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights and Government Lawyer - Attorney General's Office for Civil Rights. I also interned at Greater Boston Legal Services - Welfare Unit and volunteered at the Department of Social Services - Foster Care Review Unit.
