DOJ Concludes that Law School Application Process is Inaccessible

The agreements addressed the fact that the LSAC on-line application service used by laws schools nationally to process applications is inaccessible for applicants who are blind and who have low vision because the process does not enable individuals to use adaptive equipment, such as screen readers. The agreement with LSAC provides that by the beginning of fall 2012 the online application process will be fully accessible to individuals who use screen readers. The agreement with the Law School requires the school to modify its website “to notify potential applicants of a process they may use to apply to law school until the LSAC electronic application process has been made fully accessible” and to cease using the LSAC process for the fall 2012 application cycle if the LSAC site is not fully accessible at that time.
