Students with Disabilities
It is the policy and practice of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania requirements regarding students and applicants with disabilities. Under these laws, no qualified individual with a disability shall be denied access to or participation in services, programs, and activities of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
Students who require accommodations because of a physical, learning or other disability must be evaluated by the Office of Disability Resource Services (ODRS). The ODRS will document and verify the students status and make recommendations for appropriate accommodations to the Associate Dean of Students. The Associate Dean of Students, in conjunction with the Office of the Registrar, are responsible for the provision of accommodations throughout the school year.
The Office of Disability Resource Services is located at 216 William Pitt Student Union. Please contact Ms. Lynette Van Slyke at (412) 648-7890 for an appointment for an evaluation. It is extremely helpful to submit to that office any medical information that will assist in this evaluation. Limited testing is administered by that office at no charge to the student. If a more extensive evaluation is needed, the student may be required to pay for additional testing to verify a learning or other disability.
Please feel free to contact the Associate Dean of Students if you have questions or concerns regarding a disability and available resources (Room 315 at the Law School, (412) 648-5642).
