Informed Choice Article Published

June 19, 2020

CPR’s seminal analysis of informed choice for institutionalized persons with disabilities has just been published in Volume 40, No.1 of the Journal on Law and Medicine (2020).  The article – Realizing the Promise of Olmstead: Ensuring the Informed Choice of Institutionalized Persons with Disabilities to Receive Services in the Most Integrated Setting – traces the history of the issue of choice under the Supreme Court’s decision in Olmstead v. L.C., and proposes a legal analytical framework for ensuring that persons with disabilities can make an informed choice about whether to live and work in an integrated setting rather than remain in a segregated institution.  The article will be of interest to attorneys, judges, legal scholars, advocates, and especially persons with disabilities who seek to enforce the ADA’s integration mandate and Olmstead’s goal of full participation in community living.
