Special Education Law Blog

A lawyer and parent of a child with special needs has started a "Special Education Law Blog".

Here's his bio:
"Charles P. Fox has been practicing law in Illinois since 1986. He graduated from IIT Chicago Kent College of Law and was an editor of the law review. He is a member of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois trial bar, and a member of the bar for the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. He has tried cases and appeals in both State and Federal Court.
From 1988 to 1994, Charles was in solo practice in the area of general civil litigation.

From 1994 to the present, his practice has been concentrated in the area of special education law, representing parents of children with special needs. He has very successfully advocated for parents at due process hearings, mediations, IEP meetings, and on appeals in Federal Court. Charles is also a parent of a child with special needs, and he brings the insights of a parent together with his legal expertise in pursuing his clients’ rights to a free appropriate public education."

Although the state information may be limited to Illinois, this could be a great resource for keeping up on special education law.
