Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights under the Law records
The collection consists of litigation relating to bilingual education in the Boston Public Schools and surrounding towns in Massachusetts. The records are predominately from Alan J. Rom from the Boston Bar Associations Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights under the Law, and there is correspondence and additional material from Roger Rice of the Multicultural Education, Training and Advocacy Inc. (META). Records include court documents (e.g., pleadings, affidavits, motions, exhibits), correspondence, newspaper clippings, curricula, reports of limited English proficiency (LEP) participation, Comprehensive School Plans progress reports and Bilingual Education Status reports, Voluntary Law Compliance Plans, Bilingual Master Parents Advisory Council (MPAC) and MPAC Executive Board meeting minutes, and surveys of Boston Public Schools Literacy Program. This collection is unprocessed. The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights under the Law is a non-profit organization specializing in pro bono legal representation of victims of race discrimination. The committee participates in community education on legal matters and promotes community economic development. Accessioned 2010 Sep 08. This collection should not be processed finely--probably just to the box level for most of the material. Processor should be on the lookout for material that names students which should be restricted or returned. More material is expected. 44/2-3, 49/1-4
Requests for permission to publish material from this collection should be discussed with the University Archivist.
