Education Rights Clinic
Legal Counsel for Education Access Issues
Through in-person, one-on-one meetings, Learning Rights counsels and advises parents and develops individualized action plans that each parent can use to address their child’s education issues. During this legal diagnostic session, a parent has the opportunity to discuss their child’s educational issues.
After the initial consultation, a Learning Rights staff attorney determines whether the student is being offered equitable access to a public education. The parent then receives a plan developed specifically for their child with actionable steps to remedy the issues at hand.
When appropriate, students and their families may be offered direct legal representation to resolve the student’s education issues.

The legal advice we provide you will be supervised by a Learning Rights attorney. Your meeting with our representatives does not guarantee that Learning Rights will be able to take your case.
What You Should Bring
You should bring your child’s school records from the last two to four years, such as:
medical records (if applicable)
Any other document relating to your concern
If you cannot find or do not have a complete set of education records, we recommend that you make a written request of records to the school and district. Click here to download a template of a letter to request records from your school.
