SALA’s education law advocacy provides legal assistance in a wide range of education related problems to low-income children at risk. SALA assists families with problems such as low academic achievement; denial of appropriate educational services to children with disabilities; children with limited English proficiency; frequent school suspensions; expulsion; and discrimination in schools.
SALA’s ability to provide legal assistance in the areas listed above is subject to change based on the availability of staff and volunteers. While an applicant may be financially eligible for SALA’s services, SALA reserves the right to deny or limit services based on program resources and program priorities.
SALA assists people with civil legal problems only, and does not provide assistance with criminal matters in Arizona’s state court. For assistance with a criminal matter in state court, please contact the Pima County Public Defender’s office, the Pima County Bar Association or the public defender or bar association near you. If you or the legal problem is outside of SALA’s nine county service area, visit www.azlawhelp.org to find the local Arizona legal aid provider.
