The ADA at 30: Where Have We Made Progress and What Remains to Be Done?
Co-sponsored by the UB Disabled Law Students Association
The Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted 30 years ago. How are Americans with physical and mental disabilities better off today, and what work still needs to be done to ensure equal opportunity and access for all persons? We know that physical accessibility has been a major consequence of the ADA, but where do we stand in arenas such as employment, education and health care?
On Nov. 4, 2020, our panel discussed the topic. Panelists included UB Law alumnus Greg Care, J.D. '06 , a partner at Brown, Goldstein & Levy; UB Law alumnus Amged Soliman, J.D. '11 , an attorney at the National Council on Disability, and UB Law student Daniel Hodges , president of Peaces of Me Foundation. UB Law Prof. Donald Stone , director of its Mental Health Law Clinic, moderated the discussion.
