University of Virginia law professor James Ryan and Angela Ciolfi, director of the JustChildren program of the Legal Aid Justice Center, speak on "Poverty as Disability: Neuroscience, Poor Children and Special Education." Their talk was part of the Virginia Journal of Social Policy & the Law's 2013 symposium, "Theory and Practice," at UVA Law. The symposium aimed to bridge the academy and real-world legal practice by featuring discussions led by lawyers directly involved with each issue and professors conducting academic research that informs policy changes and legal responses in the world.

These issues require public policy attention that accounts for our knowledge of the rural poor’s contemporary economic and social circumstances. Join AEI and the American Academy of Political and Social Science for a panel...
