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
