Digital Accessibility Policy
The Law School Admission Council (“LSAC”) is committed to ensuring that all individuals, with or without disabilities, have equal or equally effective access to web pages, web-based applications, and digital information and resources associated with LSAC programs and services. Accessibility in this context, and as used in this Policy, means that all LSAC employees and representatives will strive to provide individuals with disabilities the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services, as a person without a disability in an equal or equally effective and equally integrated matter, within the same approximate timeframes and with substantially equivalent ease of use.
The Accessibility Standards
LSAC strives to satisfy the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (“WCAG”) 2.1 Level AA and the Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.1 for web content, and the User Agent Accessibility Guidelines (UAAG) 2.0 for any user agent built by LSAC, all developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), for guidance in meeting our accessibility commitments. These standards shall be referred to collectively as the “Accessibility Standards” in this Policy and related documents. In instances in which LSAC’s programs and services may be improved through nontechnical improvements or other options, LSAC reserves the right to take appropriate action in an individualized manner and outside of the WCAG to provide equal or equally effective access to its users and the individual disabilities at issue.
Any individual user that encounters a barrier with an LSAC product or service should notify LSAC at accessibility@LSAC.org. Please include your preferred method of communication (phone or email) and leave your phone number or email address, depending on your preference. If you have any questions about using assistive technology for the LSAC website and need assistance, please contact Technical Support Services at 215.968.1393.
