Accommodations

The Denver Law Review is committed to providing accommodations for students with medical,

religious, and emergency needs. Through collaboration with the Office of Student Affairs, the

Denver Law Review strives to mirror the accommodations process available to all law students

for classes and exams. Any medical, religious, and emergency accommodation requests sent to

the Office of Student Affairs will not be shared with the Denver Law Review unless approved by

the student.

 

Every student is entitled to equal opportunity within the Denver Law Review regardless of

accommodation status. The Denver Law Review does not tolerate discrimination on the basis of

race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, religion, creed, disability, sex, sexual orientation,

gender identity, gender expression, marital status, pregnancy, genetic information, military

enlistment, or veteran status. Any student who believes that they have been subjected to unlawful

discrimination has the right to file a report with the University of Denver Office of Equal

Opportunity & Title IX; such student also has the right to file a complaint with an appropriate

local, state, or federal agency.

CANDIDATES

For the write-on process, students are strongly encouraged to submit accommodation requests to

the Office of Student Affairs before the write-on period begins. The Office of Student Affairs

will consider accommodation requests submitted before the standard candidacy submission

deadline. Accommodation requests for write-on are kept strictly confidential and are never

considered in the selection process.

• Students who have approved accommodations from DU Student Disability Services

should reach out to the Office of Student Affairs. The process is the same as requesting

accommodations for exams.

• Students who wish to obtain approved accommodations should reach out to the Office of

Student Affairs, which will direct the student to DU Student Disability Services.

 

If a student experiences an emergency or unexpected event that affects their ability to write on,

the student should contact the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, Jessica Boynton, as soon as

possible. Examples of such events may include (but are not limited to) illness, injury,

bereavement, family emergencies, jury duty, or military obligations.

EDITORS

Editors are strongly encouraged to submit accommodation requests to the Office of Student

Affairs as soon as possible. The Office of Student Affairs will consider accommodation requests

submitted before the deadline of the assignment to which such accommodation is applied.

 

Although the Denver Law Review and the Office of Student Affairs strive to maintain anonymity

wherever possible, implementing certain accommodations for editors may require the student to

consent to revealing their identity. Where knowledge of a student’s identity is needed to

implement an accommodation, the Office of Student Affairs will communicate the student’s

identity and their requested accommodation to the Equity Editor, who will communicate the

student’s identity and their requested accommodation to the relevant assigning editor. If a student

has concerns about anonymity, the student should reach out to the Office of Student Affairs.

• Students who have approved accommodations from DU Student Disability Services

should reach out to the Office of Student Affairs. The process is similar to requesting

accommodations for class.

• Students who wish to obtain approved accommodations should reach out to the Office of

Student Affairs, which will direct the student to DU Student Disability Services.

If a student experiences an emergency or unexpected event that affects their ability to work as an

editor, the student should contact anyone on the Executive Board of the Denver Law Review or

the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs, Jessica Boynton, as soon as possible. Examples of such

events may include (but are not limited to) illness, injury, bereavement, family emergencies, jury

duty, or military obligations.
