J. Glater C. Peña

General Course Description:

Disability Law is a survey course providing an introduction to areas of domestic law and policy that address the rights, needs, and treatment of persons with disabilities. The course focuses on three major pieces of legislation: the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the Fair Housing Act. In addition to addressing such basic principles of disability rights law as the definition of disability and the concept of reasonable accommodation, the course incorporates critical theory from law and related disciplines to explore the politics, experience, and social conception of disability; the intersection of disability with aspects of identity, including race and class; and the differences in legislative treatment of these various ways that people differ.
