General Registration Information

The registration fee includes the opening reception, all lunches and scheduled breaks, a mid-week evening group dinner with program speakers, over $200.00 in books, and all ISEA course materials. 

Upon the completion of ISEA participants will receive a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy from William & Mary Law School. Please note that in Virginia, there are no certification or training requirements to become a special education advocate. We encourage you to research your state’s rules and regulations on the requirements, if any, of working as a special education advocate. Please also note that this course does not provide a certification or endorsement. We are simply offering a Certificate in Special Education Advocacy, which indicates that our attendees have successfully completed the required courses within the Institute of Special Education Advocacy. We expect that many ISEA graduates who earn this Certificate will list the training as an additional credential on their resumes, CVs, and LinkedIn profiles.

Registration is $1495 for attorneys (CLE credit is anticipated) and $1295 for advocates, and non-attorneys (CEU credit is anticipated) and non-credit seeking law students (see Law Student Registration Information tab for more information on receiving credit). Two or more advocates or attorneys from the same organization/office will receive a 10% discount on each registration.


For attendees staying at our conference hotel, the Williamsburg Lodge, for five nights, the registration rate will be discounted by $100 ($1395 for attorneys and $1195 for advocates). This bundle includes use of the shuttle to and from the Lodge for each day’s sessions and receptions (as applicable). Only attendees staying at the Lodge will have access to the shuttle.

Applicants will be directed to select the appropriate rate upon admission and confirmation of attendance. Only one discount will be issued per room; if two or more attendees are sharing a room, only the attendee listed as paying for the room will be eligible for the discounted rate. The discounted rate is subject to availability at the Williamsburg Lodge; early reservations are encouraged. For anyone whose plans change after initial registration with the hotel bundle, the $100 discount will no longer apply, and full tuition will be charged.
