This comprehensive casebook covers all areas of civil commitment law, institutional rights law, community rights law, sex offenders law, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Mental Disability Law also explores all aspects of the criminal process, including all criminal competencies, the insanity defense, trial practice issues, sentencing and the death penalty. It is the only casebook available that considers the important factors that have shaped mental disability law — sanism, pretextuality, heuristics and false “ordinary common sense.” The third edition includes expanded new sections on therapeutic jurisprudence and international human rights law.
