I focus on the intersection between accessibility, telecommunications, intellectual property, constitutional law, and other technology and civil rights laws. One focus, rooted in my clinical work with organizations representing people with disabilities, is on the statutory, regulatory, constitutional, and theoretical legal issues affecting the accessibility of technology. Both disability law and internet law are dynamic fields of inquiry, populated by many legal scholars. But few legal scholars sit in the vital space between these fields, asking what disability law can learn from internet law and vice versa. I situate my work at this intersection to articulate a new, hybrid field of internet disability law. I believe studying this intersection will unlock new insights, theories, and prescriptions for helping achieve accessibility online and return new insights to the constituent fields of disability and internet law.
