This course reviews U.S. law related to people with disabilities. Students in this course will learn about the nuances of disability law, including civil rights efforts to increase access to employment, public accommodations, education, and equal political and social participation. The course will review landmark case law from the U.S. Supreme Court and lower courts, and will review key pieces of legislation like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Rehabilitation Act, Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Key topics will include nondiscrimination in the workplace, access to the political process, and access to justice and due process for people with disabilities. Because this is a law course, students will also learn how to read judicial opinions, interpret precedent, develop and structure legal memoranda, and engage in effective/convincing legal writing and analysis.
