Disability Law: Cases, Materials, Problems takes a broad approach to understanding how disability discrimination laws apply to the kinds of cases attorneys, policymakers, and judges are likely to face. The new Fifth Edition adds analysis and discussion of the ADA Amendments Act throughout the book. It reorganizes and adds new cases and materials in the employment law chapter, including cases on harassment and retaliation based on disability. It also pays more attention to procedural issues (burden of proof), remedies and defenses, litigation and dispute resolution, and insurance. It adds a problem-based approach with chapters and sections of chapters beginning with a hypothetical scenario to be used as a basis for applying the substantive law. It also adds expanded Notes at the end of each section.
