The Law School Admissions Council, the organization that administers the LSAT, has a blanket policy of denying all requests for accommodation from nursing mothers who need to pump breast milk during the exam. Without the ability to pump, nursing women will be in increasing discomfort and even pain as the test progresses—causing a serious distraction that could impact their test scores. Not pumping when you need to can also pose significant health risks.
Nursing mothers should not have to choose between feeding their babies and applying to law school. And they should not have to subject themselves to distracting pain and potential health risks simply to take a required admissions test.
Tell the Law School Admissions Council that it needs to change its discriminatory policy and allow nursing moms to take the test on equal footing!
