New Mission

New Mission


My idea is to explore how other countries around the world are dealing with education and special education issues. I’d like to see different successful schools, wherever they may be, up close. I’d like to sit down with directors and administrators. I’d like to speak with government officials who keep a pulse on the education affairs of their communities. I want to learn more about education around the globe through speaking with locals, seeing the schools, and shaking hands with the people responsible for implementing the systems. If you know of any outstanding (public or private) special needs schools in other parts of the world, I’d love to hear about them. If you know any education experts from around the world, I’d love to be introduced to them. Please do not hesitate to share your thoughts or ideas. Read more about my mission.

Nosh & Knowledge at Cardozo Law School

Last week I had the pleasure of participating as the featured speaker in Cardozo Law School's Nosh & Knowledge program.  The program is intended as an informal dialogue between practitioners and law students to introduce students to different practice areas.

I met with 1L's, 2L's, and 3L's and spoke with them about the field of special education law.  I provided an overview of the field and described the nature of our legal practice.  We also discussed recent trends and developments, and opportunities for aspiring special education lawyers.  The students were engaged and enthusiastic, and asked thoughtful questions.

For those at Cardozo who may be interested in special education law, I would strongly encourage you to look into Cardozo's special education field clinic, which gives students the opportunity to complete an externship program at Advocates For Children.

Additionally, we are accepting applications for summer and fall internships at our law firm.  Interested candidates can forward their cover letters and resumes to info@dayanlawfirm.com.
