Amicus Briefs

Sclaes of JusticeCOPAA is a leader in shaping the body of case law protecting and enforcing the rights of students with disabilities and their families. 

Our Amicus Committee provides technical assistance to members and files briefs in cases of national significance. The issues for amicus are issues affecting all children with disabilities and topics of the briefs are varied.  Recent topics include the requirement to identify and evaluate all children in all areas of suspected disability; to the constitutional protections and right to be free from physical restraints in schools; and, the three separate and distinct rights and protections offered to all students with disabilities in schools under the IDEA, Section 504 and the ADA. 

COPAA welcomes requests for Amicus Briefs for cases that:

1) present an issue(s) consistent with our mission statement
2) have a precedent setting value, and
affect the educational welfare of students with disabilities.
