Disability Rights and Constitutional Law
JOTWELL is featuring Professor Michael Waterstone's article, Disability Constitutional Law, 63 Emory L.J. 527 (2014), in which he "seeks to lay a foundation for Disability Constitutional Law." Unlike the LGBT movement, disability rights advocates have not traditionally relied on constitutional arguments for their claims. "Through a careful analysis, Prof. Waterstone concludes that the Disability Rights movement has suffered setbacks through constitutional law, but the time is ripe to recoup the use of constitutional law to advance the umbrella of disability rights."
Constitutional Law for Corporations
Professor Elizabeth Pollman's new article, Constitutionalizing Corporate Law, is forthcoming in the Vanderbilt Law Review. She argues that the Supreme Court's newest rulings represent a dramatic "doctrinal shift," and "put unprecedented weight on state corporate law to act as a mechanism for resolving disputes among corporate participants regarding the expressive and religious activity of business corporations." This gives "a quasi-constitutional dimension to governance rules that were developed in a different era and with a different focus."
