Creating an Accessible and Inclusive Practice 2024

Product ID: CA3603R3
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

This program is an excerpt from Legal Issues of the Aging 2023. 

Open for business 

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), up to 27% of adults in the U.S. have a disability of some kind.1 You don’t want to exclude 1 in 4 potential clients from seeking out your services, and ensuring accessibility is a legal and ethical obligation for lawyers and firms. But you may be wondering how to make your practice more accessible to people with disabilities. 

At Creating an Accessible and Inclusive Practice, Amy M. Burger and Hamza Jaka will share insights on Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits discrimination in places of public accommodation. They’ll explain:

  • How the ADA defines “public accommodations”
  • What types of discrimination the ADA prohibits
  • What accommodations are considered “readily achievable”
  • Guidance on accessibility 
  • Applicable Wisconsin law
