Students with Disabilities
Students are not required to notify the University that they have a disability. However,disclosure may make it possible for the University to provide appropriate assistance that will enable students to participate more fully in their studies, thereby making the most of their university experience. Students are required to register with the University’s Disability Liaison Unit (DLU) before disability related support can be provided. Students may contact the Melbourne Law School Student Centre for more information.
Disabilities Equal Opportunity Liaison Officer (Mr Glenn Patmore)
Melbourne Law School has a number of students with disabilities and has appointed a member of academic staff as the disabled students' liaison officer to act as a mentor for the student body. The primary role of the officer is to assist and support students in academic and other related matters, ensuring that they have access to the wide range of services available for students including special examination arrangements, granting of extensions, taping of lectures, organising note takers and so on. If you are a student with special needs please do not hesitate to contact the Disabilities Equal Opportunity Liaison Officer. A DLO Guide is available with further details for students with disabilities. The Melbourne Law School Student Centre has appointed its own disability contact officer who can also assist students with their special requirements.
