Abstract:     
The paucity of lawyers with disabilities is well-known; workplace barriers are frequently cited as an explanation. Less well appreciated, however, is the paucity of law professors who openly identify as persons with physical or mental disabilities. Drawing on standpoint theory, this article argues for the importance of the presence in legal education of law faculty with disabilities.
