One of the best ways to learn about special education law is to attend conferences. This is also a good way to network with others who are interested in this ever-growing field of law.
I will be at the 15th Annual Education Law Conference in Portland, Maine July 28 to 31, 2008. The University of Southern Maine plus a number of cosponsors put the conference together. In addition to numerous excellent sessions on education law topics, there are strands on higher education, creative use of technology, law-themed education and a new Hearing Officer Training Academy. I will be the featured presenter for the Hearing Officer Academy, and a number of other distinguished faculty will participate. Further information about the conference may be found at:
