The Law and Society Association values the inclusion of persons with disabilities in its membership, its activities, and its governance. It is the policy of the LSA that persons with disabilities should participate as fully as other members in the Association in all LSA activities, including in particular annual meetings, committees, Graduate Student Workshops and Early Career Workshops. The LSA will make all feasible efforts to accommodate members with disabilities and to remain responsive to the needs of our members who have disabilities.
