Disability Law

Legal research guide on disability law.

Overview

This guide provides a general overview of disability law. It covers using encyclopedias for background research and how to locate articles, textbooks, treatises, statutory law, administrative materials, agency publications, legislative histories and websites of interest. The guide can be used by students, faculty members, lawyers, and the general public.

For further assistance, please schedule a consultation with a reference librarian.

Food For Thought

Disability law focuses primarily on the enforcement of various Federal and state statutes which have been enacted to remedy and prevent discrimination against individuals with disabilities. 

While disability law is largely covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (Pub. L. No. 101-336), there are many other federal laws and regulations that prohibit discrimination against disabled individuals in many areas, such as employment, housing, and education.
