Bar Application and Employment
Students who wish to apply for accommodations on bar exams should be very mindful of application deadlines. Often these deadlines precede other bar deadlines. Preparing the application for accommodations can be quite time-consuming and students are encouraged to begin this process as soon as possible. The Director of Disability Services is happy to meet with students on an individual basis concerning the application for bar accommodations.
Letters on behalf of students with disabilities can be written by the Director of Disability Services to confirm accommodations received (i.e., to the MPRE, bar). Please note that the MPRE application requires completion of their written form when seeking accommodations. To obtain this form, call the MPRE offices a few weeks in advance of the application deadline. Your information must be turned in to the MPRE by the application deadline in order to receive accommodations. For more information concerning accommodations on the MPRE, please visit the MPRE website.
The Job Accommodation Network provides useful information for employers and job seekers concerning the employment of people with disabilities.
