Applicants and Incoming 1Ls
Berkeley is a great place to live for people with
disabilities, but getting here and starting law school can be somewhat
unnerving. If you're thinking of coming to Boalt, or you are already
on your way, feel free to contact us once
you've been offered admission and
we'll do what we can to help.
Among other things, we can help with:
Advice on getting housing, finding a good doctor, and tapping into community
resources available for people with disabilities
Candid information about access at Boalt and in Berkeley
Names and phone numbers of various resources in the area
Information about what to expect your first year of law school
