Disability Services

Services for Students with Accommodation Needs

The Student Affairs Office strives to support the needs of all students. Students who believe they may need accommodations for a documented disability, temporary or permanent, are encouraged to contact Lisa Ferreira, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, as early as possible. The law school works collaboratively with students in an interactive process to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations. Interested students are required to complete an application for accommodation and submit supporting documentation at least one month prior to the need for accommodation. Accommodation requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Accommodation requests for emergency situations are also available. The process for emergency accommodations must be accompanied by appropriate documentation.

To request a packet or to find out more about disability services on campus, please contact Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Lisa Ferreira at lisaf@tjsl.edu or at (619) 961-4202.
