In the past several years, the number of lawsuits and demand letters against businesses that do business with the public through a website have skyrocketed as the U.S. Department of Justice pursued a very aggressive enforcement program to pressure businesses to make their websites accessible to individuals with disabilities. The surge of controversies concerning website accessibility caught most businesses by surprise as they had been waiting for the DOJ to issue regulations about public accommodations websites and thought they would have time to comply.

This course, presented by Seyfarth Shaw partner Minh Vu, will address website accessibility basics, how Title III of the ADA and other laws may require accessible websites, the current legal landscape, how businesses can minimize their risk of being sued, and how businesses should go about making their websites accessible.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand, at a high level, what features make up a website that is accessible to people with disabilities
  2. Provide an understanding of the current legal landscape and what laws may require accessible websites
  3. Discuss how to minimize the risk of lawsuits and make a website more accessible
