Additional Book Details

This casebook compiles the landmark Supreme Court cases that form the foundation of modern disability law. It is designed to be used alone or in combination with other disability law texts. Presented in chronological order, the cases in this book illustrate the evolution of a robust body of law, encompassing issues of education, health care, housing, civil commitment, and criminal prosecution. They provide students an opportunity to consider the diverse issues and questions that have arisen over the last 40 years, from the beginning of the disability rights movement, through the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, to the present day. Each opinion is accompanied by a case history and comprehensive study questions, so students can contextualize the decisions, think critically about their implications, and pursue independent research projects. Students who use this casebook will develop a deep understanding of disability case law and be able to apply major precedents to contemporary, evolving disability rights policy.
