Koski Receives Service Award

William Koski (PhD ’03), Eric and Nancy Wright Professor of Clinical Education, received a Public Service Award from IMPACT, a California statewide nonprofit organization serving deaf and hard-of-hearing children. The award, presented April 21, recognizes Koski’s contributions in advocating equal educational opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing children, such as his litigation work in the case J.C. v. California School for the Deaf and California Board of Education. Koski served as counsel in the case, which challenged the California School for the Deaf’s exclusion of multidisabled deaf children. Koski is the founder and director of Stanford Law School’s Youth and Education Law Project (YELP).
