  Non-Discrimination Policy
         UALR does not discriminate against people on the basis of race, gender, religion,

especially strive to create an environment free from prejudice. You may discuss with me
any concerns you have about the law school environment.

 their precise needs with me as early in the course as possible. You may also discuss your
  needs with the Associate Dean 324-9438 or the Office of Disability Services, 569-3143.
