A Quick Explanation of the Law

As we said at the beginning of this course, we don't want to throw a lot of legal and technical terms at you, but it is useful to understand the laws about accessibility.  As incredibly difficult as anything related to the law can be, we will try to lay out the basic facts as clearly and neatly as possible.  Please note that we are not lawyers and nothing provided here or anywhere in this website is to be construed as legal advice!  This is just a general layman's interpretation of the current laws and may not be completely accurate on all counts or in all situations.
