Students and Applicants With Disabilities

Main Content

Receiving accommodations is a two-step process. First, you must be granted accommodations by the Student Disability Access Office (SDAO). Go to their website to begin the process.

Second, once SDAO has granted your accommodations, you will need to meet with the Law School's Disability Services Liaison, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, Lewis Hutchison. At this meeting, you will gain an understanding of how accommodations are implemented in the law school. If you have been granted accommodations by SDAO, you should make an appointment with Dean Hutchison at your earliest convenience.

To receive accommodations for exams, students must complete both steps of the accommodations process at least 30 days prior to the last day of class. (Monday, March 18, for Spring 2024.)

If you have further questions about disability accommodations at Duke Law School, please contact Dean Hutchison.
