Shipman & Goodwin attorney Leander Dolphin will participate in the panel discussion “Advising the Applicant with a Disability” at the 2019 Northeast Association of Pre-Law Advisors (NAPLA) Conference.

The panelists will discuss what a pre-law advisor should know about helping applicants with disabilities navigate the application process, as well as how a pre-law advisor might work with an applicant to assure that their needs are met in law school as well as for the bar exam. The discussion will cover these areas and explain how accommodations and services might differ in law school from undergraduate school. Advisors will increase their understanding of the process for obtaining accommodations as well as understand the variety of approaches law schools take in handling accommodations so that they are better equipped to provide relevant advice.
