Researching Public Law and Public Policy in the Public Interest
CLiME is now accepting applications for our Equity and Opportunity Studies Fellowship, open to all students at Rutgers School of Law-Newark and the Graduate School-Newark, who seek to publish an interdisciplinary research paper on issues related to equity and opportunity in the Greater Rutgers region of Northern New Jersey.
This legal memo is the first in a series of documents prepared as part of CLiME's Trauma, Schools, and Poverty Project. CLiME researchers identified three federal statutes that may trigger a duty for schools to identify, evaluate, and provide services or accommodations to trauma victims: The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (504), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Guest Analysis
