Journal of Law and Education, v26 n3 p1-9 Jul 1997
Persons with the Disorder of Written Expression (DWE) regularly commit errors in spelling, punctuation, grammar, syntax, and paragraph organization. If, with reasonable modifications, a student can produce an acceptable written product, law schools must provide such accommodations. Administrators must create appropriate accommodations for students with DWE which do not alter their school's basic program of instruction. (32 footnotes) (MLF)
