University Legal Services, Protection & Advocacy Program
Who We Are
University Legal Services is a private, non-profit organization that serves as the District of Columbia's federally mandated protection and advocacy system for the human, legal and service rights of people with disabilities.
Services provided by ULS under the protection and advocacy grants include information and referral; education and training; investigation of reported or suspected instances of abuse or neglect; legal counsel; technical assistance, and litigation services; and technical assistance regarding legislative and policy concerns.
In addition to the areas listed here, ULS provides representation in the areas of discrimination against people with disabilities in public accommodations and government services.
