Welcome to the LI Law Podcast. 

The premise of this podcast is to feature issues, developments, and topics affecting the law and how it relates to the 8 million of us who live or work on Long Island, New York, which includes Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Kings Counties. 

During the Covid-19 health crisis, episodes will be published as soon as they are recorded to keep listeners updated on the most up-to-date legal developments on Long Island. 

Our guest on this 50th episode is Rebecca Sassouni, Esq., a student advocacy attorney based in Great Neck, whose clients are students with various problem situations in school settings.  In this episode, Rebecca discusses the challenges facing special education students and their parents during the Covid-19 health crisis and looks ahead to how special education in the post Covid-19 world may look.  Rebecca was also our guest on the 33rd episode and spoke about the importance for parents of having an advocate in their corner to negotiate school classifications and placements, as well as deal with IEP’s, suspensions, and disciplinary proceedings.
