Accommodations for Law Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities who seek accommodations on the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) or the bar examination should plan well ahead to insure they have the necessary documentation and are able to meet the deadlines to apply for accommodations, which are often earlier than the bar examination application deadlines. The Vice Dean for Student Affairs is available to meet with students to discuss these applications. Students can also request a letter confirming accommodations received at SUNY Buffalo Law School which is required for most applications for accommodations.

  • MPRE Information: For information on the application for accommodations for the MPRE, please visit the MPRE website.

  • Bar Examination: For information on the application for accommodations for a specific state's bar examination, the American Bar Association's Commission on Disability Rights on-line directory "Bar Information for Applicants with Disabilities".

  • New York State Board of Law Examiners: The New York State Board of Law Examiners instructions for requesting accommodations due to a disability on the New York State Bar Examination, including the Test Accommodation Handbook with application. A student with a disability may apply up to six months prior to the date of the examination and no later than the application deadline for the examination.
