Since the ADA was passed in 1990, many significant cases have been decided by the courts that have shaped how the ADA has been interpreted and implemented. To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the ADA, Equip for Equality and the Illinois ADA Project will take a look back at the most influential ADA cases by first reviewing the facts and ruling of these cases, and then discussing the broader impact the cases have had. This program promises to cover a wide variety of ADA issues under Titles I, II and III.

Although open to the public, this program will be geared toward raising awareness about the ADA within the Chicagoland legal community. The goal is to educate attorneys who represent employers and businesses covered by the ADA, so that they can help their clients better understand their responsibilities under the ADA. Equip for Equality also hopes that the training will inspire attorneys to pursue ADA pro bono opportunities.
