ADA Legal Webinar Series: Websites and the ADA: "Accessibility in the Digital Age"
When the ADA was enacted in 1990, the internet had not yet become such an important part of people's lives, including the lives of people with disabilities. Now that the internet has become such an integral tool for businesses, employers and governmental entities, courts have been grappling with how the ADA applies to websites. Also, the Department of Justice has announced it will be revising its regulations to address web-site accessibility. This webinar will review the legal theories on applying the ADA to the internet and discuss the case law analyzing this issue.
