This seminar examines discrimination, entitlements, ethical issues, and comparative law related to individuals with disabilities and the elderly. The seminar begins with an introduction to the concepts of "aging" and "disability" and the application of various theories of justice to individuals who are considered to be "aged" or "disabled." Attention then turns to the review of statutes that prohibit discrimination against individuals with disability and the elderly in five specific areas: employment, housing, voting, access to public accommodations, and access to public benefits. Next, the seminar addresses the major entitlements for which individuals with disabilities and the elderly are eligible, including Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Capacity, selective abortion, euthanasia, elder abuse, hate crimes, institutionalization, and other topics that are central to disability and elder law are also examined. The seminar concludes by introducing relevant international law and comparing the laws and policies affecting individuals with disabilities and the elderly in other countries with those in the United States.
