2016 Disability Civil Rights Law Series: Providing Legal Services to Clients with Disabilities (With Focus on Mental Health)
Date training recorded: Mar 18, 2016
Trainer(s): Linda Kilb, Maria Palomares
Sponsoring Organization(s): Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF), Western Center on Law & Poverty (WCLP)
Lawyers are “public accommodations” under federal and California disability civil rights laws, and thus we have our own nondiscrimination obligations to clients with disabilities. This session will provide detail on legal mandates and defenses as to reasonable accommodations, policy modifications, communication access and physical access requirements vis-à-vis our clients.
Note: This is the second in a series of Disability Rights Law webinars that will offer an overview of relevant legal authority, as well as advocacy tips and practical resources. Subsequent sessions will focus on disability rights issues arising within particular practice contexts.
