LAW 452 - Employment Discrimination


This course introduces the laws prohibiting discrimination in employment because of race, national origin, sex, religion, age, and disabilities. In particular, the course emphasizes federal statutory protections provided by Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, The Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Students will have the opportunities to grapple with the theories at work in employment discrimination law, to trace the evolving judicial interpretations of the anti-discrimination statutes, and to learn practical skills at dealing with the special problems inherent in the litigation of employment discrimination cases.
