This course examines the law regulating employment discrimination and equal employment opportunity, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The course emphasizes the major analytical frameworks for conceptualizing discrimination and equality in the workplace, as well as related social science perspectives on employment discrimination. This course covers employment discrimination law in the depth necessary to practice and litigate in this area, and also focuses on litigation strategies for employment discrimination actions. After each major unit, the professor will lead an in-class, ungraded exercise to give students an opportunity to apply the material to a hypothetical client problem. Class sessions include practitioner guest lectures from lawyers working on cutting edge issues in employment discrimination law. This course does not overlap in coverage with Employment Law (which covers common law and statutory regulation of wages and working conditions) and Labor Law (which covers the law of unions and collective representation). It covers more material about the major employment discrimination statutes, with more of a litigation focus, than Antidiscrimination Law, so that both courses can be productively taken together or sequentially.
