Disability Law and Policy Program

The DISABILITY LAW AND POLICY PROGRAM (DLPP) houses the nation’s first Joint Degree Program in Law and Disability Studies, a Curricular Program in Disability Law and Policy, and the Disability Rights Clinic as well as disability-related summer and semester-long externships in New York and Washington, DC.

The COL DLPP is the most extensive disability related law school program in the United States. Students who participate in this program go on to secure legal jobs in the areas of disability, education, special education, children’s rights, civil rights, labor, employment, trusts and estates, and international human rights law. Our graduates now work for federal and state government agencies, private law firms, domestic and international NGOs, public interest law offices, legal services offices, school districts, policy organizations, think tanks, and some students have started their own law practices or pursued LLM or PhD degrees.
