Teaching Disability Employment Discrimination Law: Accommodating Physical and Mental Disabilities
Kulow, Marianne DelPo
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v29 n2 p335-362 Sum 2012
Disability employment discrimination is often treated summarily in legal environment courses. This is actually a topic with significant practical application in the workplace since managers are often those who are confronted with accommodation requests. It is therefore desirable to include a class with hands-on exercises for students to begin to experience the line drawing required by the Americans with Disabilities Act's (ADA's) definition-driven language. The author has been using the approach described in this article, including both small group exercises, for over a decade, updating the law when the ADA Amendments were passed. In the author's experience, this class covers important and serious material in a readily accessible and fun way. (Contains 65 footnotes.)
