The Office of Student Services and Advising assists students in obtaining reasonable accommodations for documented disabilities/medical conditions.

Such disabilities/conditions include physical, sensory and health-related disabilities; psychiatric disorders; learning disabilities; A.D.H.D.; or temporary disabilities. If you believe that you may need an accommodation, please make an appointment with a member of the Office as soon as possible to discuss your situation.

Students who are applying for accommodations will need to read the Accommodations Memo 13-14 and fill out the attached Initial Request Form.

Students may want to utilize the ABA Commission on Mental and Physical Disability Law Mentor Program for law students with disabilities. Information can be obtained at www.americanbar.org/groups/disabilityrights/resources/mentor_program_mentee_information.html

Students can also find helpful information in the Disability Resources memo and the National Disability Organizations memo

Students applying for accommodations on the Bar exam should read the memo Tips for Students with Disabilities Applying for Special Accommodations on the Bar Exam.

Additional information on accommodations can also be found in the Student Handbook.
