Language and the Law in Deaf Communities is an absolutely outstanding book that is must reading for all attorneys and judges involved with deaf individuals in cases concerned with criminal law, school law, and disability law. It is equally important for educators and administrators in schools attended by disabled children, especially those who are deaf. In addition, deaf adults and parents of deaf children would be greatly helped by the information the authors provide.
