WEBINAR: Legal Year in Review

When:  Sep 29, 2021 from 02:00:00 PM to 04:00:00 PM (ET)
AHEAD’s expert legal team will survey the legal landscape in a much-changed world. COVID has had a profound impact on a broad range of issues from “who is an individual with a disability” to the scope of the duty to accommodate on-line services. Even after the pandemic, will the pivot to online instruction and “work-at-home” programs create a duty to provide brick and mortar courses online as a form of accommodation? How has COVID changed our concept of what is or is not a fundamental alteration or an undue burden? Beyond COVID issues, our favorite analytical question, “Who is a qualified student with a disability?” continues to be refined by the courts. There are also emerging trends which may make it more likely for students with intellectual disabilities to attend college. Looking over the horizon, disabled individuals are challenging the ADA and 504 compliance of “disruptive technologies” like Zoom. This 2-hour webinar will cover the latest legal issues under scrutiny and go beyond the cases covered in this summer’s conference.
