Product Description

Understanding Disability Law discusses important statutory and constitutional issues relating to disability discrimination. It is designed to help readers synthesize and apply the materials they are learning. It is also designed to function as a compact treatise for practicing lawyers and others looking for an analysis of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Americans with Disabilities Act, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Fair Housing Act Amendments, and other laws, as they relate to controversial issues of disability rights. The book discusses the leading cases on each of the major topics of disability law, and suggests ways of thinking about unresolved questions and debates over legal policy.

Understanding Disability Law includes detailed coverage of:

Constitutional law bearing on disability discrimination;
The controversy over who is a person with a disability for purposes of federal statutes;
Employment discrimination rights and remedies;
Educational discrimination, including special education law and higher education for students with disabilities;
Discrimination in public accommodations;
Discrimination by federal, state, and local governments; and
Other topics, including disability discrimination related to housing, transportation, and telecommunications.

The Lexis-Nexis/Matthew Bender Understanding Series is reknowned among law students and legal practitioners for offering comprehensive treatments on over 30 legal topic areas. These books complement legal hornbooks to provide superlative legal reference tools.
