Other Information

The College of Law has a class on Disability Law which is usually taught once a year by Professor Mark Weber.

While the College of Law does not have a mission statement of its own on disability, there is a statement from the University:  "The mission of the Office of Students with Disabilities (OSD) is to provide accommodations and support to students with disabilities that will enable them to fully participate in programs and services that are available at DePaul University. In addition, the Office of Students with Disabilities encourages students with disabilities to independently manage their lives inside the university as well as in the community outside the University. The Office of Students with Disabilities works with various departments within the university to ensure that no qualified student(s) with disabilities are denied the benefit of, excluded from participation in, or otherwise subjected to discrimination because of the absence of educational auxiliary aids."

Contact Person is Karen Meyer, 773-325-7290, kmeyer@depaul.edu

Clinical Program

The Mental Health Advocacy Project aims to increase the quality and quantity of community mental health services available for persons with serious mental illness. Students and faculty work together on individual cases, and on lobbying efforts to affect local, state and federal legislation. The Employment Discrimination clinic also represents individuals with disabilities who are bringing claims against their employers and cannot otherwise afford representation.
