There were more than 2,800 web accessibility lawsuits filed in Federal Court in 2021, a 14 percent increase from 2020. As this number continues to climb, the Department of Justice (DOJ) is weighing in.

In its latest guidance statement, the DOJ solidifies its position: Web accessibility is an ADA requirement for state and local governments, as well as businesses open to the public. With this guidance, organizations will need to ensure their websites are accessible to individuals with disabilities. But the guidance stops short of articulating exactly how to do so.

What should every legal counsel know about web accessibility compliance in 2022? How should your organization respond to this latest guidance? And how do you mitigate your risk of non-compliance?

Join us in a discussion with a former DOJ Deputy Assistant Attorney General and renowned accessibility attorneys. You will learn:

  • Details of the DOJ’s guidance and how to interpret it
  • The current state of case law and what to expect moving forward
  • Best practices for achieving web accessibility
