Disability Law Clinic

The Disability Law Clinic represents people with disabilities in a wide variety of civil and administrative matters, including disability civil rights, access to assistive technology and special education cases.

Current projects include a federal lawsuit against the Law School Admission Council, alleging that the LSAT discriminates against blind test-takers; an administrative complaint challenging a condominium association's refusal to adopt a no-smoking policy as an accommodation for a resident with severe respiratory problems; and a charter school's failure to accommodate a student with chronic migraine headaches.

Upcoming events

The Disability Law Clinic is presenting a series of workshops for parents, guardians and other caregivers of children with disabilities designed to help them understand and protect their children's rights under the Individuals with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
