FAQs: Wrightslaw Training
We receive many requests from people who want us to provide legal and/or advocacy training in their area. We decided to publish this "frequently asked questions" about conferences and training.
We do not plan, arrange or schedule training sessions ourselves. We are just Pete and Pam Wright -- we do not have the staff or resources necessary to put on training. When we come to an area, we do so because a group or organization has contracted with us and is taking care of the logistics.
Over the past several months, organizations in West Virginia, New Hampshire, New York, Washington, Virginia, California, South Carolina, and Texas arranged for us to provide training in their areas.
These organizations found creative ways to fund the training. Some groups used grants. Some solicited and received financial assistance from companies, hospitals, medical practices, and law firms. In other cases, two or three groups pooled their resources to bring us in. We help get the word out through the Wrightslaw site and The Special Ed Advocate newsletter.
Pete has a very active trial practice. Pam writes books and articles, publishes newsletters, and builds websites. In general, we limit out-of-town travel to no more than one conference or training session a month.
The Special Ed Advocate is a free online newsletter about special education legal and advocacy issues, cases, tactics and strategy, and Internet resources.
Subscribers receive announcements and "alerts" about new cases, events, and special offers on Wrightslaw books.
