ABA Commission on Disability Rights

Resolution 111 Summary

Under the Commission on Disability Right’s (CDR) resolution the ABA urges entities that administer law school admissions tests to provide accommodations that best ensure that the skills of the test-takers are measured, and not their disabilities. It would further urge that the process for determining whether to grant an accommodation be made public; a decision on approving an accommodation be conveyed to the applicant within a reasonable amount of time; and that there be a fair appeals process for a denied accommodation. The resolution also urges testing entities to not flag scores that have received a disability-based accommodation.
