It is virtually impossible to keep up with technology in our personal lives, let alone professionally when seeking to assist our students. At the same time, the recent lawsuit by the National Federation of the Blind leads to a host of questions about a law school's duty/best practice/options when a provider it uses is not wholly accessible to one or more disabled students. A technology vendor may claim that it is ADA-compliant, but we still see aspects of almost every product that are not accessible to severely visually impaired students. Does it matter that the database or study aid is not required by a professor, only recommended, if other students have access to it? What are the effective steps a law school can take with a vendor, and what is the law school obliged to do? Our panel will address these issues and share the latest in technology.Panel: Kenneth Hirsh, Director, Law Library and Information Technology, University of Cincinnati College of Law (moderator); John Gilroy, Director of Business Developers, SolutionsDevelopers, Computer Guy (WAMU-FM); and Gary Norman, Master of Laws student, American University Washington College of Law
