LLM for Visually Impaired International Student


Ghana
My niece is a high functioning and determined LLB student in Ghana. She is looking to study for a LLM in an international field in America. Any suggestions on schools likely to be suitable for her?

Congratulations on having such a striving and inspiring family member!

Unfortunately I can only provide insights from a quick online research without any personal experiences. A number of law schools specifically address impaired J.D. students (e.g. http://www.law.columbia.edu/admissions/jd/apply/faq/academics#Disabilities or https://www.law.berkeley.edu/students/student-services/disabled-students/) stating that they accommodate any special needs. I am absolutely convinced that this holds true for LLM students.

Studying at a US law school means studying in a diverse and inclusive environment. In this environment, accommodating special needs - including your niece's - goes without saying. Thus, instead of selecting law schools in accordance with your niece's needs, I absolutely invite you to select law schools on the basis of her wishes, aspirations and dreams. Everything else is - if at all - secondary.

Best of success!
