We are committed to providing students, faculty, staff, and the general public with the technology and information they need, and to making these resources accessible to all, in accordance with CUNY’s Policy on Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination and applicable law.

This site provides resources and information on technology accessibility for students, faculty, and staff at the CUNY School of Law. Here you can find links to campus accessibility resources, information on the creation of a new Electronic & Digital Accessibility Task Force, and details on accessibility in system-wide applications.

Find out what it means to make information technologies and digital materials accessible to people with disabilities and what you need to know.  Get Started!

All CUNY School of Law electronic and information technologies must be accessible to all individuals who wish to access them, and accessibility must be addressed in connection with the procurement, development, implementation, and ongoing maintenance for all existing and new electronic and information technology acquisitions.

It is the responsibility of our administrators, faculty, and staff to ensure equal and effective electronic and information technology access.

Any information and technology including, but not limited to, computers and ancillary equipment, instructional materials, software, videos, multimedia, telecommunications, or web-based content or products, developed, procured, maintained, or used in carrying out university activities must be compliant with Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended; New York State IT Policy NYS-P08-005, and other related local, state, and federal laws, and University policies.

Compliance means a person with a disability must be able to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability, and be able to do so in an equally effective manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. The person with a disability must be able to obtain the information and services as timely, fully, equally, and independently as a person without a disability.
