Brianna M. Crews is the inaugural PELE Fellow to serve the PELE Special Education Advocacy Clinic at William & Mary Law School. In addition to supporting clinic operations, Crews will be overseeing the development and implementation of a new project by the PELE Clinic, the Empowering Virginia’s Military Families in Special Education Project. The project is designed to provide legal assistance to military families located in Virginia on special education matters.

Crews received her B.S. in History and English from Texas A&M University-Commerce Honors College where she spent three years working on the East Texas War and Memory Project, a project dedicated to collecting and preserving the oral histories of Texas veterans from World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War. Through her work in this project, she developed a deep respect for the military community and the challenges that they bear in service to our country.

Crews graduated from William & Mary Law School where she was a student advocate for two semesters with the PELE Clinic, earning a CALI Excellence for the Future Award for her work during her second semester in the clinic. At W&M Law School, she was a member of the Women’s Law Society and the Christian Legal Society. She is licensed to practice law in Texas.
