Certificate in Special Education Advocacy

This year, for the first time, ISEA will offer the option for attendees to earn a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy from William & Mary Law School.

Upon the conclusion of ISEA, we have traditionally issued informal certificates of participation from Wrightslaw, the Oklahoma Disability Law Center, and William & Mary Law School to attendees. For those who wish to receive the informal certificates of participation upon completion of the program, the traditional registration rates are $795 for advocates and $995 for attorneys.

For those who choose the new Certificate option, the cost of registration will be $1195 for advocates and $1395 for attorneys. Starting in 2018, only the Certificate in Special Education Advocacy track will be offered.
