Testimonials from previous Disability Law Summer Schools:
“Empowering, informative, consciousness raising”
“Very good aspect of the week was hearing about what is happening in other countries – progress, barriers and challenges from around the world. Thank you!”

“I found the week to be one of the most wonderful and valuable experiences of my professional life”

 “Extremely well organized, not only logistically but also the sequence of presentations building upon each other”

I am very impressed with the course. The knowledge will help me to improve and defend the rights of children with disabilities in my county”

“Offers an awareness of activism by disability rights organisation across the globe”

“The personal experience of the lecturers was illuminating…realising possibilities and potential that are still open to me as a person with a disability”

“I am now more aware of the diversity of people and opinion with the PWD community…and the distance between reality and the aspirations of the convention. I can now look at things more critically"
