The Harvard Law School Project on Disability (HPOD) works to integrate theory and practice, with our scholarly work informing our applied endeavors and vice versa. Established in 2004 to assist in the drafting of the landmark United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), HPOD has worked in more than 40 nations across the globe, from the U.S. to China to South Africa. On April 20, we will engage in a conversation about our successes and challenges in our multi-prong approach to advancing the rights of people with disabilities around the world. The discussion will include a dialogue with the Harvard Law School faculty and staff, alumni, and students. We invite the participation of alumni as we discuss our developing strategy to work with people with disabilities around the world to positively change their community and society.
