My interest in disability studies focuses on legal advocacy as a way to ensure that the human and civil rights of individuals with disabilities are recognized by society and realized by affected individuals. American society, including the legal system, has much to learn from the international law approach to rights and I try to integrate that perspective in the disability studies courses that I teach.
