It is the policy and practice of the University of Missouri School of Law to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local requirements regarding students and applicants with disabilities. No individual shall be discriminated against by the University of Missouri School of Law because of a disability, nor shall any qualified individual with a disability be denied access to or participation in Law School services, programs, or activities because of the disability. The School of Law is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities, though the School is not required to make accommodations that are unduly burdensome or that fundamentally alter the nature of the program.
Students who have been accepted for admission are advised to contact the admissions office as possible regarding disabilities that might require accommodation. Early identification of disabilities is necessary to allow adequate time to evaluate documentation and to coordinate accommodations. The accommodation process takes some time, so the Law School may be unable to grant last-minute requests for accommodation.
