Disability law is remarkably diverse, the issues often involving legal areas that, at first glance, do not appear to be germane to the field. The authors bring their unique perspectives to their chapters and we hope you will find both the subject matter and their perspectives to be valuable in your practice. — Nancy Maurer and Simeon Goldman.
