Title IX and Reasonable Accomodations

Brooklyn Law School is committed to maintaining a respectful, supportive, and inclusive, community free from sexual misconduct. The Law School’s Sexual Misconduct Policy identifies behavior that constitutes sexual misconduct and was created to foster a climate of respect and security on campus and to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct.  These procedures help ensure that students understand their rights and are aware of how to find any resources they may need. The Law School has mandatory Title IX training for all incoming and student leaders.

Students seeking a reasonable accommodation based on a physical or mental disability must seek accommodations through the accommodation process. The purpose of the Reasonable Accommodation Procedures is to provide students with information about how to request accommodations so that their physical or mental disability, including pregnancy and related conditions, do not exclude them from Brooklyn Law School’s academic programs and activities.
