Laws and Legal Updates

Digital accessibility is a civil right of people with disabilities. And digital accessibility is global, with laws and policies advancing digital inclusion of disabled people in countries around the world.

Lainey Feingold speaks and writes about developments in the digital accessibility legal space. Her writing on this website is designed for non-lawyers (as well as lawyers), including people in the overlapping disability and digital accessibility communities.
