Law - Certificate in Disability Legal Studies


Return to School of Law Return to: School of Law

The law exerts a powerful and direct impact on the lives of persons with disabilities. It is estimated that close to 20 percent of the US population, nearly 54 million people, have a disability, with a dramatic increase in the proportion since 1970. People with disabilities comprise one of the largest, least employed, and most disenfranchised minority groups in society.

This 15-credit certificate program is a unique effort to provide legal education to those working in the administration of and provision of services in disabilities programs. Administrators, educators, health practitioners, advocates, social workers, architects, city planners, attorneys, and business leaders, among others, could potentially benefit from the program’s instructional content.

Requirements


Students enrolled in the certificate program are required to take four core courses.
