Providing an inclusive educational environment.

Charlotte School of Law is committed to providing an inclusive educational environment, responsive to the needs of all its students, including those students with disabilities. In doing so, Charlotte School of Law is guided by its mission statement, the Americans with Disabilities Act, state and local statutes and ordinances and all applicable regulations.

All documentation submitted to, and the records of, the Law School Disability Office, shall be held in confidence in separate files. No information about a student's disability shall be released to School faculty or staff without the express permission of the student, unless there is a clear educational or health/safety reason. Upon a student's graduation or other separation from the School, the records of Law School Disability Office shall become part of the student's permanent records.

Documentation Requirements To Verify A Disability
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 guarantee certain protections and rights to equal access to programs and services to those with disabilities. In order to access these rights, an individual must provide documentation verifying that the disability substantially limits some major life activity (seeing, hearing, speaking, walking, breathing, performing manual tasks, learning, caring for oneself, and working).

Charlotte School of Law has adopted the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) standards and best practices on documentation requirements. For more information about AHEAD, please go to: For more information about disability documentation in higher education, please click here.
