Impactful Interactions: Autism Spectrum Disorder and the Legal System Symposium Foreword


The symposium—and this resulting issue of the law review—also demonstrate that collaboration is generative. The initial idea for this symposium was inspired by my on-going work with the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute, and we appreciate the contributions of Lindsay Shea and Dylan Cooper of the Institute to the symposium. The members of the Drexel Law Review and, in particular, the Executive Editor of Symposia Evan Poulgrain and Editor-in-Chief Whitney Petrie, along with Associate Editors Kenneth Grozier, Brian Loughnane, Yosef Palanker, and Alexa Tzarnas, did extraordinary work during challenging times to organize the symposium. We also appreciate the support of Kline School of Law Dean Daniel Filler and Associate Dean Deborah Gordon (the law review’s faculty advisor). Mary McGovern, Joseph Walker, and Martin Durst provided invaluable organizational and technical expertise and assistance. Many thanks are due to these and all of the other individuals who worked so hard to put this symposium together and ensure that it ran smoothly. And, of course, many thanks are owed to the panelists and moderators, along with the many people who attended the symposium.
