Disability Law: Introduction to the rights of individuals with disabilities, with an emphasis on issues of nondiscrimination. The course will focus primarily on the Americans with Disabilities Act, but we will also address topics arising under other disability rights statutes, such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and the Fair Housing Amendments Act. We will consider application of these statutes to a wide range of public and private settings, including public accommodations, education, institutionalization, and transportation. Throughout, attention will be paid to the history of discrimination against U.S. citizens with disabilities.
Employment Discrimination: This course examines statutory and constitutional law designed or invoked to protect employees from discrimination based on race, gender, religion, age, disability, and sexual orientation. Topics typically include recent debates about the meaning of discrimination, the role of statistics in proving discrimination, affirmative action, pay equity and comparable worth theory, work/family conflict, and sexual harassment. May include new theories for addressing discrimination, based on age and disability, as well as on intersectional factors (such as race combined with gender).
Disability Law Student Organization: Disability Law Student Organization is a student-run organization at the University of Utah. The focus of our group is on supporting individuals of all varying abilities including but not limited to those with sensory impairments, communication disorders, as well as physical, mental health, learning, intellectual, emotional, and developmental disabilities, and other impairments that substantially limit major life activities.
