Please join us for a discussion about the why, when, and how of litigation as a tool for education reform in Los Angeles. Leaders from diverse backgrounds will discuss the ways in which they have used civil litigation to protect and advance students' rights and the complex decision-making behind their approaches.  Panelists will also discuss two key questions - Is litigation always the right choice to advance reform?  And, what exactly does “education reform” mean for our schools and communities.
 
This program – hosted by the School of Law's David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy and Students Matter – is cosponsored by the School of Law’s Critical Race Studies Program and Education and Law Society.
 
The 2013-14 David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy Speaker Series is made possible by the generous support of the Margaret Levy Fund.

DIRECTIONS TO UCLA SCHOOL OF LAW AND PARKING INFORMATION

Permit Parking

Parking on the UCLA campus is $12. For UCLA School of Law, park in Lot 2 or 3 (see map below). To purchase an all-day parking permit, please go to the parking kiosk at the Westholme and Hilgard Avenue entrance to the UCLA campus (to your right as you enter the campus) and ask to park in Lot 2, the parking lot to the south of the parking kiosk.
 
The School of Law is due north of Lot 2 and the parking kiosk.
 
Please note that permit parking is often difficult to secure during the day when the campus is in session.
 
Parking Pay Stations
 
Short-term parking is also available at self-service pay stations, which allow for parking by specified time periods. For UCLA School of Law, self-service pay stations can be found along the eastside of the School of Law building (although these are hard to secure), and in Lot 2 or Lot 3 (enter the Lots and follow the arrows to the “pay by space” sections) and at the outdoor parking spots east of the School of Law building.
