Lawyers themselves are required to comply with federal and California disability rights laws. This training will provide an overview of these basic legal requirements, as well as offering practical tips for ensuring access to legal services for people with disabilities. Particular attention will be given to representation of clients with mental health disabilities. This training will assist in the recognition, identification, and prevention of bias in a legal setting.
