Disability Rights Program takes on Law School Admissions Council for Discrimination Against Prospective Lawyers with Disabilities

On behalf of three individuals, the Legal Aid Society–Employment Law Center is seeking permission to join a federal court case alleging that the Law School Admissions Council Discriminates against prospective lawyers with disabilities. According to the complaint, the LSAC excludes and discriminates against test-takers with disabilities by imposing onerous and unnecessary documentation requirements upon those needing accommodations, by operating arbitrary and unpredictable procedures for evaluating requests, and by refusing in many instances to make any testing modifications at all.
