Disability Rights Project

The Disability Rights Project (DRP) at Berkeley Law advocates for people with disabilities. Students will provide pro bono legal research support to Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF), a leading national civil rights law and policy center. DREDF engages in impact litigation on behalf of people with disabilities on issues such as education, housing, medical care, transportation, and emergency response.

In Spring 2019, the DRP will focus on research related to Medicaid and the Americans with Disabilities Act, settlement and discovery protocol, and legal requirements for emergency services. This work will further DREDF’s mission to advance the civil and human rights of people with disabilities through legal advocacy and public policy.
