Welcome to the University of Ottawa Disability Law Association


The Disability Law Association (DLA) is a student-run club at the Common Law Section of the Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa.


Our mandate is threefold:

1. to provide a forum to discuss disability law issues, and wider social issues such as human rights that relate to it;

2. to raise awareness about disability law issues within the faculty community; and

3. to assist law students to implement a barrier-free environment for all students including those with disabilities studying at the Faculty of Law.
