Disability Law Clinic

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.
