LSAC Settles with Blind Advocacy Group, Will Modify Law School Application Website

The U.S. Department of Justice has announced a settlement between an advocacy group for the blind and the Law School Admission Council, which has agreed to modify its website so that its Internet application process is accessible to those who cannot see.

In a press release today, the DOJ discusses the pact and links to a copy of the settlement agreement for the California state court case.

A National Law Journal article gives further details.
