Abstract:

"Liven up your disability law or policy course with this diverse collection of cases, policy articles, stories, and questions. More traditional casebooks contain fragments of cases clumped together by statute, while this text contains interesting, multidisciplinary articles categorized by disability studies topics. The topics are cutting edge and were chosen based on demonstrated student interest over the years. Issues like the disability rights movement, deinstitutionalization, public transportation, inclusion, homelessness, immigration, the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and supported employment will engage students and introduce them to the diverse and intriguing issues of disability law and rights. This text can stand alone or can be used in conjunction with The U.S. Supreme Court on Disability Law: 16 Modern Cases or with An Anthology of Disability literature". -- BACKCOVER.
