Applicants with Disabilities

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every five adults has some form of disability. It is important in the quest for justice that people with disabilities can choose to be represented by lawyers who share their challenges.

Law schools are very conscious of their obligation to accommodate students with disabilities and to educate lawyers who may represent persons with disabilities. Both federal and state law require colleges and universities to accommodate students with disabilities.

For information about resources available to meet your needs on campus, it is best to contact individual law schools.

Accommodations for the LSAT
