The course will then focus on issues of education law and entitlements, access to and discrimination in employment, housing, public transportation, and health care. The impact of the Social Security Act, Medicare, Medicaid and other federal and state entitlements will also be covered in depth. The course will be graded on the basis of a final examination.
