Abstract The Law School Admission Council’s (LSAC) website is the gateway for aspiring law students to apply to law schools and to register for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Yet, LSAC operated a website that was not accessible to blind law school applicants who use screen reader software.

To challenge LSAC’s inaccessible website, DRA and Co-counsel Brown Goldstein Levy LLP and LaBarre Law Offices, brought a lawsuit in 2009 against LSAC on behalf of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and several blind law school applicants.
