Danielle’s work in Cyber Civil Rights reminds me of a program Fordham Law School had with the Department of Justice about twenty years ago. Then, Fordham Law School placed a couple of its students in the DOJ’s Civil Rights Section. I supervised these students in an externship program that paralleled the DOJ’s Honors Program. When Congress enacted the American with Disabilities Act of 1990, Fordham law students were assigned to the ADA’s division within the Civil Rights Section. The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals because of a disability in employment, in public accommodations, commercial and transportation facilities, and telecommunications.
