Disability Law (LAW 779)

Disability Law takes a civil rights approach to studying laws relating to individuals with disabilities. The course examines American law that protects individuals with disabilities from irrational discrimination in the areas of employment, public accommodations (i.e., privately operated facilities open to the public), governmental services and programs, education (K-12), higher education, and housing. Students will study the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rehabilitation Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, and Fair Housing Act. This is not a course that takes a paternalistic approach to individuals with disabilities by studying programs that pay them benefits for their disabilities. Instead, the course focuses on how laws can unlock God-given potential by focusing on abilities and removing man-created barriers. You should challenge yourself to understand and critically analyze the nature of disability law by always asking and answering the appropriate questions—every legal conclusion is preceded by asking the appropriate question.

Health Law Survey (LAW 773)

This course is a survey of topics in the diverse body of law known as “health law.” Because of recent and ongoing changes in the way health care is delivered and paid for in the United States, health law is a rapidly evolving and burgeoning area of study. Health law principles governing the interaction of patients, health care providers, and insurance companies will be analyzed. These principles include the physician-patient relationship, informed consent, privacy and confidentiality, the duty to treat, medical malpractice, regulation of the health professions and health facilities, health care financing (including Medicare, Medicaid, private medical insurance and the Affordable Care Act), fraud and abuse regulations, regulation of drugs and devices, mental health law, and public health law.

Health and Disability Law Clinic

This yearlong clinical course is offered in partnership with the Legal Aid Justice Center, and course meetings are typically held onsite at the firm. LAJC’s clinics are designed to educate students about the range of strategies used by attorneys to identify, investigate and attack systemic injustices, encouraging holistic and community-partnered approaches to lawyering. Clients’ health needs include public benefits claims (including Medicaid, Social Security, Medicare and other benefits); insurance coverage; obtaining access to mental health or rehabilitative services; and seeking justice for the mistreatment of seniors and those with disabilities in various contexts. Representation may include appearing in legal proceedings, negotiations, administrative hearings and court proceedings (to the extent permitted by law). Students will also address systemic issues related to the provision of community-based services, the rights of the institutionalized, health care in jails and prisons, and the interface between the civil and criminal justice systems on health and mental health related matters.


Disability Law

The disability rights movement has, over the past half-century, brought about landmark legislation at local, state and federal levels. Unfortunately, a genuine opportunity to achieve fully self-actualizing, productive and dignified lives remains beyond the reach of many people with disabilities. This course will examine federal laws and judicial interpretations thereof in order to understand their theoretical and policy justifications, their impact and their limitations. Contexts examined will likely include lower and higher education, employment, government services, and public accommodations. The statutes that we will study will likely include the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Employment Discrimination

This course focuses on the principal federal statutes that prohibit discrimination in employment, especially Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The course also considers federal constitutional law as it affects judicial interpretations of the foregoing employment discrimination statutes.

Forensic Psychology in Criminal Proceedings

This interdisciplinary seminar examines the role of mental illness, intellectual disability, and other psychological phenomena (e.g., trauma) among criminal defendants, and examines ways criminal law and policies allow (or prohibit) consideration of these conditions. Seminar sessions examine the prevalence of mental illness among defendants, and consider key issues such as adjudicative competency, waiver of rights, criminal responsibility (legal sanity), sexual offending, violence risk assessment, and the role of mental illness and other psychological phenomena in sentencing. Although the seminar will focus on adult defendants, it will also address some of these issues among justice-involved youth as well. The course relies on the UVA Forensic Clinic so students can observe court-ordered forensic mental health evaluations related to course topics.

Law and Inequality Colloquium

This colloquium offers students the chance to engage with leading scholars exploring law’s relationship to inequality. In each session we will discuss a current work of legal scholarship on inequality, first as a class, then in the following session with the author as our guest. Interested UVA law faculty will also be invited to attend. Students will leave the class having grappled with the most up-to-date research on topics involving law’s role in reinforcing or challenging various forms of inequality, such as race, class, gender and sexuality, disability and their intersections.

Mental Health Law

This course will explore some of the major challenges in designing and implementing mental health law and policy in the 21st century. The subjects studied will include emergency mental health interventions and safe and effective responses to persons experiencing mental health crises; reducing access to firearms by people at elevated risk of suicide or violence; criteria for involuntary hospitalization and mandatory outpatient treatment; ethical and legal issues regarding psychiatric medications; assessment of decisional capacity; and use of advance directives in mental health care. To the extent possible, assigned materials and cases studies will focus on current legislative proposals in Virginia and other current policy developments in the United States.

Requests submitted after the first month of the academic term, or requests submitted with incomplete documentation (including insufficient testing data), could result in a delay of consideration and action on the request until the following academic term. The student will need to complete a "Request for Accommodation of Disability" form, obtain a copy of the most recent medical or cognitive testing documentation, and schedule an interview with the Assistant Dean.


Disability Law Seminar (LAW 671)

This course will examine disability rights laws impacting all areas of community living, including public access, housing, employment, and education. An examination of the historic and cultural background of disability rights will provide a framework for understanding current laws and emerging trends in disability civil rights. Students will examine the impact of current and proposed laws on people with disabilities and learn about working effectively with clients and attorneys with disabilities.

Employment Anti-Discrimination (LAW 773)

This course surveys the major federal laws prohibiting discrimination in the workplace, including 42 U.S.C. § 1981, Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. It covers the various methods of establishing liability and defenses to liability and explores issues relating to various types of discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin and religion; racial and sexual harassment; classifications based on pregnancy or childbirth; LGBTQI issues; language discrimination; and discrimination the basis of disability. Finally, it covers anti-retaliation protections as well as remedies and alternative dispute resolution in nonunion and union contexts. Throughout, it critically examines both the opportunities and limits of antidiscrimination law as a primary means of enforcing fairness in U.S. workplaces.

Labor and Employment Law Practicum (LAW 845)

This practicum is built around simulations in four important sub-fields in contemporary labor and employment law practice: (1) the contract of employment, both formal and informal, as a matter of state law, (2) federal employment discrimination law, covering race, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability, (3) federal labor standards, such as minimum wage and overtime or family and medical leave regulation, and (4) collective bargaining and labor arbitration. There will be some introductory instruction to provide students an overview of the substantive fields. Students will acquire additional doctrinal understanding, develop practice skills and exercise professional judgment and responsibility through their work on the simulations.
