General Board / Psychiatric Disability Right in Law School
« on: September 24, 2009, 10:57:55 PM »
In a lot of higher education institution, they ignore disability rights laws regarding psychiatric disabilities.  They think students are just going to use it to slack off.  The truth is that psychiatric disabilities, are illnesses just like asthma or diabetes, and people with psychiatric disabilities are just as sane, capable, and intelligent as anyone else. 

I was wondering,if anyone here with a psychiatric disability who is in law school, can tell me; which law schools are psychiatric disability friendly, how to deal with a psychiatric disability in law school,what kind of accomdinations law schools will give students with psychiatric disabilities, how to deal with the psychiatric disability in the admissions process, and are disabilities concerned a minority in the law school admissions process?

Where should I go next fall? / What's American University like?

I am a 28 year old sophmore in college, and I'm very interested in American University Law School.  It is my first choice law school that I want to go to.  I am currently majoring in political science.  I am at a community college right now, and I am trying to transfer to Hamline's undergraduate program.  There I am hoping to double major in legal studies and political science, and double minor in women studies and social justice. (a lot of the courses cross over.) 

I want to go into public interest law, doing civil rights and litigation work.  I have dreamed of being a lawyer and running for office since I was fifteen.  I have worked as a political activist, and read about law and politics for fun, ever since. 

At American University, I want to get my L.L.M. in law and goverment, with concentrations in; General Practice, Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, and Civil and Constitutional Rights. With specializations in general practice, environmental law and policy, health care law and policy, labor and employment law and policy, general civil rights, criminal law, and gender in the law.  I also wanted to get a joint graduate certificate from American University school of public affairs, women and politics institute, in Women, Policy and Political Leadership (WPPL).

I was wondering if someone who goes and/or went to American University Law School, could tell me what the law school is like there, and what advice they might giving me about getting in and about attending their law school.

I am part Jewish on my father's side.  Does that make me a minority candidate?
