Services for Students Seeking Accommodations

The Office of Student Affairs of the law school works with the university Office of Student Disability Services to provide services and accommodations to meet the varying needs of law students with disabilities. The Office of Student Disability Services facilitates academic accommodations for students with documented physical, medical, sensory, and psychiatric disabilities. Disability Services also facilitates academic accommodations for students with documented learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder. These services and accommodations are in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Section 504 states, in part, that "no otherwise qualified handicapped individual … shall, solely by reason of his/her handicap, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance … "

Students seeking an accommodation need to register with the Office of Student Disability Services before an accommodation will be given at the law school. You can contact them via their website.
