Disability Rights Clinic

The Disability Rights Clinic represents clients with disabilities in a variety of legal contexts. Students represent low-income parents of children with disabilities attending Texas public schools. The Clinic brings cases against school districts alleging violations of state and federal special education and anti-discrimination laws. Students gain first hand experience by drafting civil complaints, developing expert testimony, mediating cases, and participating in hearings and trials.


My experience in the Disability Rights Clinic was the highlight of my time at law school. Professor Wood’s creativity and passion for disability-rights law is contagious, and she truly showed me how the law can be effectively used as a sword and shield for those who are most in need of an advocate.
