DRLC is pleased to announce the date for our 2014 Franklin D.

On June 4, 2014, DRLC along with Disability Rights Advocates (DRA) and Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian, and Ho (GBDH) filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California alleging that the City of Long Beach is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act by discriminating against residents and visitors with mobility impairments. 

Volunteer Opportunities Cartoon

There are many ways to support the work of DRLC.  Law students and pro-bono student volunteers are particularly important to the organization, as they help provide much needed assistance to people with disabilities, including those with cancer or other chronic illnesses.  Each semester, students receive hands-on experience through impact litigation, individual representation, and telephone assistance training.  Additionally, all volunteers have the opportunity to enhance their research and writing skills by drafting correspondence and conducting legal research.
