Political And Civil Rights

Law 316



Rigorous Writing Experience (RWE)



This seminar will focus on the critical role the law has played throughout history and in the present day in defining and determining the scope, breadth, meaning and applicability of civil and political rights in America. We will also closely examine the principles, rationale, and context of judicial decision-making regarding civil rights generally and, in particular, in determining to whom they apply, when they are abridged, and the remedies available to redress their violation. This course will critically explore various historic and contemporary issues in civil rights law, including discrimination in public education, public accommodations, municipal services, voting, housing, land use, and public and private employment.
