Abstract

In spite of all the short-comings, the level of people with disabilities rights and capabilities protection has become a good indicator of nation’s development, and such a trend is nothing but hopeful. At the same time, one can hardly imagine that this high attitude would be attainable without the influence of left liberal ideologies, that among omnibus achievements granted the shift from medical to social disabilities model.

This situation cannot stand but to resemble in a certain state of rights and capabilities exercise, and even the availability of access to the key resources is impossible to bring to the point of marginalization of the mental and physical health problems. As the analyzed material shows, left liberal ideologists, being responsible for shaping the current International Law on Persons with Disabilities, finally succeeded in promoting their principle ideas in the national case-law. The example of the national judgement concerning the right to water, can serve as the proper illustration of that relief flow, as the national judiciary can fix the development of the rights and capabilities of individuals from the same basis.

The article further develops the idea, that national courts sometimes tend to use realistic approach (as invented by R. Pound, J. Llewellyn, O.W. Holmes) for the sake of implementing the social model of disability. The conclusion, that legal realism is a transmitter for left liberal values in the modern western societies, arises from the presented study.
