If you have a disability/medical issue protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and need to request accommodations, please visit the Student Disability Services (SDS) website at  https://studentaffairs.du.edu/disability-services-program.


The College of Law requires that all faculty maintain and enforce a firm attendance policy. Students must attend at least 80% of the class meetings. Viewing a recording counts as attending the class meeting. 

Recording Policy: 

All class sessions at the Sturm College of Law will be recorded, with the exception of most clinical classes. To request a recording of the class, students who do not have an approved accommodation through the University’s Student Disability Services must complete this petition with the Office of Student Affairs. Students will be permitted to access recordings for the following reasons: medical emergencies, family emergencies, religious holidays, military obligations (short-term, temporary), parental leave (up to 2.5 weeks), jury duty, and academic conflict. If a student’s request does not fall within any of those categories, the student will need to receive the faculty member’s permission before submitting the petition and receiving the recording. There is no option for students to Zoom into a class synchronously.
