Enhancing Accessibility for All Law Students

Law schools are legally required to provide accessible content to their students. Complaints against colleges and universities for failing to make their websites and course materials accessible to students with disabilities are on the rise. Accessibility impacts not just websites but also library technologies and materials, course management sites, exam software, and class materials. The task of providing accessible content to law students with disabilities can seem daunting. However, there are easy solutions to common accessibility problems that every law school employee can learn to employ.

This session intends to introduce librarians, faculty and law school technologists to the issues surrounding accessibility. The session will provide easy strategies and techniques to create accessible materials no matter what the delivery mechanism. Attendees will learn how they can proactively ensure equal access to information for all law students.

Learning Objectives:
  • Attendees will learn about legal and moral obligations related to accessibility.
  • Attendees will learn to recognize the common barriers and issues that impact students with disabilities when accessing information in the law school environment.
  • Attendees will discover strategies to employ in their respective departments to ensure the creation of accessible content.
  • Attendees will learn the best practices for creating accessible documents, online course content and materials, videos and web content.
  • Attendees will discover resources and tools to develop accessible online content
