Mental Disability Law: Civil and Criminal is a logically organized and readable discussion of the entire body of law affecting the mentally disabled. It provides thoughtful answers to practically every research, counseling or litigation problem that could conceivably arise in this area. Each chapter of this treatise contains practical checklists and commentary to highlight and clarify case authority. Extensively annotated, it contains a table of cases and cites hundreds of authoritative secondary sources.
Mental Disability Law: Civil and Criminal was released in a new Third Edition in 2016, and for the first time in a 3-binder loose-leaf format. Beginning with this edition, separate cumulative supplements will no longer be published. To improve ease of use, annual revisions and updates can now be integrated immediately into the main text. Of particular note in the new Third Edition, there are greatly expanded chapters on sex offender laws and on the Americans with Disabilities Act.
