dc.description This article linked the detail of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 to a critical jurisprudential appraisal of the Act and tribunal interpretations, and it was targeted at academics and disability rights policy makers. However, it is unashamedly theoretical in parts, exploring critically assumptions at the heart of the Act. Tribunal interpretations of the Act highlight inherent weaknesses of the Act, and the article pulls these together to inform future anti-discrimination policy and law in the field of disability. The author was subsequently asked by the Disability Rights Commission to contribute to the legal construction of the DDA 2005.
