The National Association of Law Students with Disabilities (NALSWD)
hosts its Annual Conference in Washington, D.C.
Friday, March 9, 2012- Sunday, March 11, 2012
All law students with disabilities are encouraged to attend NALSWD’s Annual Conference at George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C. (2000 H Street, NW Washington, DC 20052). The conference will feature panels on getting bar exam accommodations, employment disclosure and accommodations issues, government hiring, and updates in disability law. There will also be a bevy of lawyers with disabilities in attendance, eager to provide advice and mentoring and to connect students to job opportunities! We have an impressive line-up of speakers working in the government, non-profit, and private sectors.
Saturday all day: panels, keynote, reception with young D.C. lawyers with disabilities, and small group dinners in D.C.
Sunday morning: disability law crash-course, closing speaker, and student meetings to set priorities for NALSWD going forward.
All types and degrees of disabilities are encouraged to attend. The NALSWD conference is a great way to meet lawyers and law students with disabilities from all over the country that can be an incredible support network.
