This article presents information about the future of disability law, that is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). While the ADA's achievements must be celebrated, the statute's limitations have become increasingly apparent. In particular, the statute appears to have had little, if any, positive effect on the overall employment of people with disabilities and a number of commentators assert that it has had a negative effect. In short, the future of disability law lies as much in social welfare law as in anti-discrimination law. The basic goal is more instrumental to assess which policy tools are most likely to achieve objectives that the disability rights movement has itself articulated.
