As a late speaker, Nida Siddiqui experienced first-hand a perplexing educational system that left her family bewildered and unaware of her educational rights and educational-related violations that followed. Since then, Nida has dedicated her legal career to representing the disenfranchised. Before joining TLO in 2021, Nida spent four years practicing civil litigation as a plaintiff-side attorney against powerful institutions and players. At TLO, Nida works as part of a team dedicated to aiding children, young adults, and their families in knowing their rights, enforcing their rights and finding resolutions so they can enjoy and attain an education every child and adult deserves.
During her undergraduate studies at UCLA, Nida volunteered for Public Counsel’s Pro Per Guardianship Clinic and the school’s Incarcerated Youth Tutorial Program. Nida went on to pursue her legal studies at UC Davis School of Law, where she concentrated in public-service and litigation coursework. Outside the classroom, Nida partook in the law school’s prestigious Civil Rights Clinic to address prisoner rights and advocacy; wrote education policy summaries and served as an Articles Editor for the Journal of Juvenile Law & Policy; and competed in intramural trial, negotiation, and bowling tournaments. During law school, Nida also interned as a Certified Student Law Clerk for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. As an attorney, Nida volunteered at Public Counsel’s at Public Counsel’s Appellate Self-Help Clinic.
With her litigation and personal experience, Nida takes pride in empowering families facing challenges with their school districts and entitlements to equality, equity, and justice.
