    If disabled law students someday become disabled lawyers, will they be able to bill their clients for the extra time they need for research, the drafting of motions, etc? Or will the law firms that employ them be expected to eat such losses?

    What a bunch of CRAP. The process of dumbing down of America continues apace. Now, if I really want to get into law school, I just need to find a convenient Doctor who will give me an ADHD diagnosis (those are pretty damn easy to get) and I‘ll be given lots of extra time to complete the timed test, the results won‘t be predictive of my success in law school, but that really doesn‘t matter, because with my ADHD diagnosis, I‘ll be given extra time to complete my tests in Law School as well! America - moving inexorably toward idiocracy day by day.
