Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); the 15th anniversary of the Disability Law and Policy Program; and the Syracuse Law Review ADA Special Volume.
Thirty years ago, the ADA became law, ensuring basic civil rights for people with disabilities in all areas of public life. Over the past few decades, the field of disability rights law has experienced rapid growth, as scholars, practitioners, and legislators alike have sought to advance the mission of the ADA to create a more fair, just, and equal world.
To that end, Syracuse University College of Law founded, in 2005, the award winning Disability Law and Policy Program, which has become the most extensive disability law program in the United States. DLPP faculty and students work on the front lines of domestic and international issues of paramount significance to people with disabilities all around the world.
Volume 71 of Syracuse Law Review hopes to recognize, and continue, this progress with the publication of a Special Volume. This latest issue features scholarship that discusses both where we have been, and, perhaps more importantly, where we have yet to go in the field of disability rights law.
