SCR 2.082 Non standard test accommodations
(1) The bar examination shall be administered by the Bar Examining authority to all eligible applicants in a manner that is fair and equitable.
(2) An applicant with a disability, who is eligible to take the bar examination, may file an application for reasonable non standard test accommodations. For the purpose of this rule disability shall be defined as a physical or mental impairment that; (a) substantially limits one or more major life activities, (b) substantially limits the ability of an applicant to demonstrate, under standard test conditions, the skills, abilities and knowledge tested on the Kentucky bar examination, (c) this applicant has a record of having, or (d) this applicant is regarded as having.
(3) An Application for Non Standard Test Accommodations shall be submitted on a form approved by the Board. The application forms may be obtained from the Kentucky Office of Bar Admissions.
(4) Individuals requesting non standard test accommodations shall submit a complete Application for Non Standard Test Accommodations, including all required supporting documentation by the filing deadlines prescribed in SCR 2.022(1).
(5) The Bar Examining authority shall make reasonable modification in the manner in which the examination is administered to an applicant with a disability whose application for non standard test accommodations has been approved by the Board, while maintaining the security and integrity of the examination.
(6) An emergency request for non standard accommodations may be filed after the prescribed deadlines stated above if the applicant did not have the disability at the time of filing the application to take the bar examination. Due to processing complexities, an emergency request may not be granted if; a) time constraints preclude the applicant from being able to provide necessary justification for the accommodations sought, or b) there is insufficient time for the bar examining authority to properly evaluate the applicant's request or make the necessary arrangements for the non-standard test accommodations.
