Gendering Disability To Enable Disability Rights Law, Michelle Travis 2016 University of San Francisco

Gendering Disability To Enable Disability Rights Law, Michelle Travis

Michelle A. Travis

This Article expands the social model of disability by analyzing the interaction between disability and gender. The modern disability rights movement is built upon the social model, which understands disability not as an inherent personal deficiency but as the product of the environment with which an impairment interacts. The social model is reflected in the accommodation mandate of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), which holds employers responsible for the limiting aspects of their workplace design. This Article shows that the limitations imposed upon impairments result not only from physical aspects of a workplace but also from other ...

Adjudicasaurus Rex, Jeffrey S. Wolfe

Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary

This article proposes a simple theme.

These are the very issues that drove the federal courts in the passage of the Civil Justice Reform Act of 1990 (CJRA). This article provides ...

Use Of Facial Recognition Technology For Medical Purposes: Balancing Privacy With Innovation, Seema Mohapatra

Pepperdine Law Review

Imagine applying for a job, and as part of your application process, your prospective employer asks for a photograph. You, as an eager candidate, comply with the request and, unbeknownst to you, the employer runs your picture through a software program that scans you for any common genetic diseases and that estimates your longevity. Alas, your face indicates that you may die young. No job for you. Although this sounds like science fiction, we may not be that far off from this scenario. In June 2014, scientists from Oxford reported that they have developed a facial recognition program that uses ...


Immigration And Disability In The United States And Canada, Mark C. Weber 2016 DePaul University College of Law

Immigration And Disability In The United States And Canada, Mark C. Weber

Mark C. Weber

Disability arises from the dynamic between people’s physical and mental conditions and
the physical and attitudinal barriers in the environment. Applying this idea about
disability to United States and Canadian immigration law draws attention to barriers to
entry and eventual citizenship for individuals who have disabilities. Historically, North
American law excluded many classes of immigrants, including those with intellectual
disabilities, mental illness, physical defects, and conditions likely to cause dependency.
Though exclusions for individuals likely to draw excessive public resources and those
with communicable diseases still exist in Canada and the United States, in recent years
the United States ...
