This course teaches disability rights, a cutting-edge area of civil rights law, involving landmark state and federal statutes that have been enacted over the last four decades to ensure equal opportunity for adults and children with disabilities, including the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. The course explores substantive areas of employment, housing, education (including special education) and access rights, addressing recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions as well as teaching practical skills for litigating civil rights cases. Disability Rights #287 is taught by two prominent public interest attorneys who handle a diverse case load of systemic law reform cases at the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund, Inc. (DREDF) and the Employment Law Center.
