The Pepperdine School of Law considers the training of skilled and compassionate advocates among its highest priorities.
Many of our students gravitate toward a distinguished strand of advocacy education, drawn by the banner of our Pepperdine Special Education Advocacy Clinic (PSEAC) and by the challenges faced by millions of children with disabilities and their families who need and deserve a voice greater than their own.
This is heart-centered work. Our students are taught
the unique nature of disabilities, substantive special education
law, and how best to interact with agencies.
The Clinic's mission is twofold:
To enrich the experience of law students through involvement in this public interest field, providing advocacy services and training to local organizations and the families they serve; and
To empower parents and families of children with disabilities to be effective advocates, equipping them with knowledge of special education law and the skills necessary to productively and successfully participate in the advocacy process.
Our clinic embraces the premise that when parents, educational and service agencies, and compassionate law advocates work collaboratively in the best interest of the child or adult with special needs, the client has the best chance for a successful and happy life.
Wanted: Advocates and benefactors for our heart-centered work. Help us enrich the resources for Pepperdine's special education student advocates ... our champions.
