Colleen Shea Represents Students Charged With Crimes

Skadden Fellow Colleen Shea (’16) of the Disability Law Center was interviewed on “You Are Here” on Boston radio station WERS about her work curbing the school-to-prison pipeline (“Kids in Cuffs: Why Are Students Being Arrested in Schools?” Nov. 12). Colleen said that students involved in school discipline matters are sometimes blindsided by criminal charges months later. She has handled about 20 of the “bizarre and random” cases in just one year.
