ADA Legal Webinar Series: Criminal Justice and the ADA

September 16, 2020 2:00pm to 3:30pm EDT

Presented by the Great Lakes ADA Center and the ADA National Network

One of the first ADA cases the U.S. Supreme Court decided made clear that the ADA applies to state prisons. But was has happened since that groundbreaking decision 22 years ago? This webinar will review how the ADA has been applied to a wide-range of criminal justice situations including interactions between law enforcement and people with disabilities, physical accessibility and effective communication within correctional facilities, the interplay of solitary confinement and the ADA, and the ADA’s role when people with disabilities are released from custody. Join us to make sure you’re up to date on the latest legal developments involving people with disabilities and the criminal justice system.
