Disability Law

This seminar will address a wide range of civil rights issues that arise in the representation of clients with disabilities and will examine evolving public policies affecting persons with disabilities. Substantive areas that will be covered include civil rights (including employment and public access), education, housing, reproductive rights, and criminal justice. Ethical considerations for the practitioner in the representation of individuals with disabilities will also be explored. Students will discuss how public disability policy is both reflected in the law and responds to legal challenges.
