SURVEY OF MENTAL DISABILITY LAW

 Survey of Mental Disability Law

Examine the civil and constitutional bases of mental disability law in such areas as civil commitment; institutional rights (with specific focus on the right to refuse treatment); and deinstitutionalization, aftercare, and federal statutory rights (with specific focus on the Americans with Disabilities Act). Explore all aspects of the role of mental disability in the criminal trial process, including criminal incompetencies; insanity defense; federal sentencing guidelines; and the death penalty. Study the meanings of “sanism” and “pretextuality,” thehistory of mental disability law and why and how it has developed as it has; and most importantly, why judges and fact finders decide mental disability law cases the way they do, to facilitate our predictions of future trends and outcomes.
