Dramatic Changes in Disability Law: The ADA Amendments Act
David Fram
In this session, we will discuss the new ADA Amendments Act and its dramatic changes to the definition of "disability," including broad revisions to the definition of "major life activities," whether to analyze an individual as medicated, the meaning of "substantially limits" (both for cases arising before and after the effective date of the ADAAA), how long a condition must last in duration, and the expansive new definition of what it means to be "regarded as" disabled, including practical advice on avoiding "regarded as" claims.

10:00 am to 11:30 am
Keynote - Diversity: On TV, Behind The Scenes And In Our Lives
Soledad O'Brian
In an ever-changing society in which more and more emphasis is placed on the diversity among America's people, it is important to recognize and discuss the growing numbers of immigrants to this country. Whether the topic is diversity in the media, educational opportunities for minorities, women in our workplace or mentoring, diversity speaker Soledad O’Brien examines the issues as a true world citizen.
