Join us for a discussion with environmental experts and reproductive health practitioners who will explore the intersection of these two movements and consider strategies for future collaboration.

Assisting Law Students with Disabilities in the 21st Century - Research Project: Bar Examination Accommodations for ADHD Graduates Fri, 18 Mar 2011 19:34:46 GMT
(14.4 Mb) Some law students applying for ADHD accommodations on the bar exam are unfairly disadvantaged by the common state bar agency requirement to provide a childhood history of ADHD, as many are not diagnosed until adulthood, and others do not have a sufficient record of childhood history. The well-recognized need to diversify the legal profession lends importance to this issue, as the students disadvantaged by this requirement are more likely to be those generally underrepresented in the profession. Learn more and offer feedback to colleagues conducting research in this area. Panel: Neha Sampat, Associate Dean for Student Services, Golden Gate University School of Law; and Esme Grant, Disability Service Coordinator, Golden Gate University School of Law

Assisting Law Students with Disabilities in the 21st Century - Technology: Are You (and Your Vendors) Ahead of, Behind, or on the Curve? Fri, 18 Mar 2011 19:34:37 GMT
(14.1 Mb) It is virtually impossible to keep up with technology in our personal lives, let alone professionally when seeking to assist our students. At the same time, the recent lawsuit by the National Federation of the Blind leads to a host of questions about a law school's duty/best practice/options when a provider it uses is not wholly accessible to one or more disabled students. A technology vendor may claim that it is ADA-compliant, but we still see aspects of almost every product that are not accessible to severely visually impaired students. Does it matter that the database or study aid is not required by a professor, only recommended, if other students have access to it? What are the effective steps a law school can take with a vendor, and what is the law school obliged to do? Our panel will address these issues and share the latest in technology. Panel: Kenneth Hirsh, Director, Law Library and Information Technology, University of Cincinnati College of Law (moderator); John Gilroy, Director of Business Developers, SolutionsDevelopers, Computer Guy (WAMU-FM); and Gary Norman, Master of Laws student, American University Washington College of Law

(12.6 Mb) The concept of accommodations can be alien to an incoming international law student, and inaccessible to any entering student. Whether made aware late in the process or not at all, the student typically arrives armed with minimal expectation or documentation regarding a disability. As administrators navigate the challenges of housing to insurance to personal assistance to academic accommodations, we will discuss best practices in this area, with the goal of distributing a guide on this topic. Panel: Fanta Aw, Assistant Vice President, Campus Life, American University (moderator); Sandra P. Buteau, Director, Graduate Career and Professional Development, Office of Graduate Programs, Georgetown University Law Center; and Nana Sharia, Edmund S. Muskie Graduate Fellow, University of Louisville

Panel: Paula Nailon, Assistant Dean for Professional Development, The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law (moderator); Sheri Denkensohn, Special Assistant Counsel to the Inspector General, US Department of Health and Human Services; Andy Imparato, Senior Counsel and Disability Policy Director, US Senate Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) Committee; and Isaac Lidsky, Associate, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP
