AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT

Americans with Disabilities Act: Law, Policy, and Practice

This course explores legal, policy, and practical implications of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it applies to people with both physical and mental disabilities (with a significant focus on issues involving mental disability). The course will cover the wide range of disability-based discrimination that the ADA addresses, including questions of discrimination, access to services, access to the judicial system, institutional rights, and community rights. Students will study the contextualization of the ADA and mental disability law jurisprudence; definitions of “disability”; issues involving employment discrimination; discrimination in public accommodations and professional licensing; housing discrimination; discrimination in public services; institutional segregation as discrimination; the ADA and the criminal justice system; and sovereign immunity and access to courts.
