Abstract

This paper presents a critique of the legal constitution of disability employed by the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The concept of disability employed will be evaluated with reference to current social models of disability. These will be employed to evaluate to what extent, if at all, the Act’s definition accords with the contemporary models of disability. The definition of disability will be deconstructed and by reference to both legal and non-legal sources, key fault areas within the constitution of disability will be identified and critically evaluated. The interplay between the concept of “normality” and the legal constitution of disability will be explored, as will the constitution’s interplay with social disabilities and hidden disabilities.
