Courses on Disability Law

Americans with Disabilities Law
The goal of this online course is to familiarize students with the legal, policy, and practical implications of the Americans With Disabilities Act as it applies to people with both physical and mental disabilities. The course will cover the wide range of disability-based discrimination that the ADA addresses.

Mental Disability Law
This course is offered online and covers civil/constitutional issues (involuntary civil commitment, institutional rights, the right to refuse treatment, deinstitutionalization, and the Americans with Disabilities Act). Also covers criminal issues (competencies, the insanity defense, Federal Sentencing Guidelines, sexually violent predator acts, the importance of mental disability in criminal trial process issues such as confessions and the privilege against self-incrimination, and the death penalty).
