JMU Justice Studies alumnus Timothy R. Johnson will be offering a guest lecture, "Special Education Between a Rock and Hard Place" on Thursday, October 27 at 6:30 p.m. in Madison Union (Taylor) 305.

The lecture presents the interconnected administrative and legal issues people involved in education must navigate in the face of the underfunding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Timothy R. Johnson is an attorney in Northern Virginia.  While in law school, in addition to a range of other accomplishments, Mr. Johnson represented children with disabilities, and their parents, as a special education advocate in New Jersey. In 2013, he graduated New York Law School, cum laude.  He has since worked as a court-appointed attorney representing individuals targeted for involuntary civil commitments, provided pro bono legal consultations and legal presentations to indigent communities in the Northern Virginia area on topics related to immigration, education, and special education rights, and is a director for the Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center.
