How does the law address inequality? This course probes the fundamental frameworks of civil rights and anti-discrimination law. Among the topics we will cover are discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and religion, across a variety of social contexts (schools, work, housing, public accommodations, and governmental services). Students should leave the class with a clear and practical understanding of existing federal law, while being equipped to grapple with questions about the real-world consequences and limits of the current legal frameworks. Because the class emphasizes the application of civil rights law outside the workplace, it is designed to complement Employment Discrimination.
