Product Description

This casebook examines the development of disability rights law and policy in the United States and abroad and can be used as either a law or graduate school teaching tool. It gives a complete and current treatment of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the ADA Amendments Act, including the background of the statute’s passage, definition of disability, discrimination in employment, public services, and public accommodations. It also gives in-depth coverage of other important federal disability discrimination statutes like the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Rehabilitation Act, and Fair Housing Amendments Act. This book is unique in that it offers extensive coverage of the rapidly developing area of international disability law, through discussion of the new UN Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities and related developments. The authors also offer detailed coverage of current policy issues involving taxation, health policy, and technology. The book has been streamlined significantly since the last edition.

There have been dramatic legal and policy developments, and strong academic and practical interest, in the area of American and international disability civil rights law. This Disability Civil Rights Law and Policy casebook comprehensively examines the development of disability rights law and policy in the United States and abroad in a format for use as a law or graduate school teaching tool. It gives a complete and current treatment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, including the background of the statute’s passage, definition of disability, discrimination in employment, public services, and public accommodations, as well as the statute’s remedial structure. It includes sections on the background of the disability rights movement, international disability law, and discrimination in housing and education. The authors also discuss disability law and technology issues in depth, as well as disabilityrelated social welfare and tax policy. The book offers ample opportunity for case analysis by students, as well as providing thought-provoking discussion topics.
This statutory supplement, intended for use with the main casebook, includes excerpts of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (as amended by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008), the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Fair Housing Act (as amended by the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (as amended by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004), and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
