I am currently writing my final paper on ADA in Law Firms or Private Sector: The Transition from School to Work. While researching, I came across an article regarding how law students with disabilities are being accommodated in law school. The article states that college students are covered by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (White). Each student should provide documentation of his or her disability to prove that the disorder is under the ADA and Section 504. Accommodations in law school may include additional testing time, alternative formats such as Braille, breaks, wheelchair accessibility, and physical prompts for those who have hearing impairments (White). Any student who has a disability should disclose that he or she needs accommodations early in law school because if not, it could create some difficulty in receiving assistance on the bar exam. In addition, this article also states that the National Disabled Law Students Association is an advocacy organization that encourages law students to contact their school's disability resource center for accommodations (White).
