Appointment of Manager at Auckland Disability Law

Auckland Disability Law is pleased to announce that Neera Jain has been appointed as manager and she will take up her role on February 3rd. Neera is originally from the United States and has recently relocated to New Zealand.

She brings with her excellent skills in the area of advocating for disabled tertiary students, as previous roles were held at large universities, supporting disabled students. Neera is committed to the “disability” cause; so to speak, as per her involvement in disability related lobbying efforts in the US.

Both Auckland Disability Law and Neera are excited in the taking up of this crucial role and we both look forward to the challenges ahead.
