Disability Accommodations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability by colleges and universities receiving federal funding. Washburn University School of Law provides reasonable accommodations for students who are qualified individuals with disabilities. Qualified individuals with disabilities are defined as those persons with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

Students with a current accommodation need should contact Shelby Grau immediately at Washburn University School of Law, 1700 SW College Ave., Topeka, KS 66621-1140,

Employment Discrimination (LW 786; 3 hours)

This course focuses on the theory and practice of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, and color. Sexual harassment law receives considerable attention. Coverage of process and procedure includes examination of the growing use of alternative dispute resolution to resolve discrimination claims. Other statutes such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act are studied, but because their basic structure is parallel to Title VII, they require less discussion.

Estate Planning and Taxation (LW 749; 4 hours)

In this course, students will learn the planning techniques, ethical and professional considerations, legal issues, tax consequences, and practice considerations associated with trust and estate planning and administration. Subjects include planning and drafting techniques focused on meeting client goals, minimizing federal taxation, maximizing asset protection for clients and the beneficiaries of their estates and trusts, maximizing the availability of governmental resources, and minimizing the risk of family disharmony in the administration of trusts and estates. This course will also focus on estate planning for a client’s mental disability through "advance directives," including financial powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, living wills, and do not resuscitate directives ("DNRs").
