Kansas Board of Law Examiners
Testing Accommodations

The Kansas Board of Law Examiners is committed to providing reasonable testing accommodations to applicants with disabilities, consistent with state and federal law. The bar exam is designed to test the knowledge and skills necessary for one who seeks admission to the practice of law. A qualified applicant with a disability, who is otherwise eligible to take the examination but who cannot demonstrate under normal testing conditions that he or she possesses the knowledge and skills to be admitted to the Bar in the State of Kansas, may request reasonable testing accommodations.  The burden of proof is on the applicant to demonstrate the need for accommodations.

Applicants who wish to be considered for reasonable testing accommodations by the Board must complete the attached application and submit by November 15th for February examinations or April 15th for July examinations.  The application will then be reviewed and an appointment will be made for a personal interview.  Attorney Admissions will not accept incomplete testing accommodation applications.  Missing documentation or improper documentation is grounds for the application to be considered incomplete. No accommodations will be granted to applicants who fail to complete the application and supply the Board with the required documentation.
