DRC-NH recently welcomed Andrew Sirulnik to head our Special Education and COVID-19 Law Project. Started in October of 2020, the Law Project is solely focused on protecting the educational rights of children with disabilities through individual representation, systemic advocacy, and public policy work.
Andrew graduated from Cardozo School of Law in 1994 where he was a member of the Cardozo Law Review. Prior to joining us, Andrew was in private practice where he was a zealous advocate for students of all ages since 2014. Andrew is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts. Admission to the NH Bar is in progress.
Prior to the COVID-19 crisis, we received hundreds of calls on special education issues. Since the start of the pandemic, that number has continued to grow and significant effort is required to make sure that the pandemic does not result in increased inequities for student with disabilities. Under Andrew’s leadership, we will expand our existing special education capacity to meet this growing need.
