The UNC School of Law works through the Department of Disability Services to determine what accommodations an individual student needs. Reasonable accommodations are provided to students who are identified by Disability Services and who have provided documentation that supports the need for reasonable accommodations so they may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of law school life.
Disability Services offers individualized programs and services, including academic advising, registration assistance, accessible classrooms and materials, tutoring and special testing arrangements to enable students with disabilities to enjoy campus life as independently as possible. To be eligible for services, students must provide medical documentation that provides information about a substantial limitation to one or more major life activities, specifically as it applies to meeting the demands of University life, in and/or out of the classroom. Students with temporary disabilities (such as broken limbs) or who want more information should see the Assistant Dean for Student Development.
