Christine Pickel, an associate in the Higher Education Practice, wrote this article that explains steps schools should take to comply with sections of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that pertain to providing equal opportunities in athletics to disabled students. Recent guidance on the subject from the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights focused on these opportunities in elementary, middle and high schools, but the article explains how this same guidance pertains to colleges and universities.
