2008-2009 Law Catalog [ARCHIVED BULLETIN]

LAW 3795 - Disability Law


This course provides an introduction to the legal protections of the rights of people with disabilities. It will focus on the Americans with Disabilities Act, but may also examine the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and its guarantee of equal access to education, the Fair Housing Act’s prohibition against disability-based discrimination in housing transactions, and parts of the Rehabilitation Act that prohibit disability-based discrimination in federally assisted and operated programs. We will consider application of these statues to a wide range of public and private conduct, with special emphasis on employment. Throughout the course, we will critically evaluate the distinct response of disability rights law to the problem of disability-based disadvantage and will consider the merits of alternative responses.

Credits: 3
