Employment Discrimination Law (21310). 4 units. This course will examine the regulation of workplace discrimination through Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of l964 and related laws. It is an introductory, but comprehensive course that emphasizes the major analytical frameworks for conceptualizing race and sex discrimination--and equality--in the workplace. The course will combine a pragmatic, litigation-oriented perspective with a theoretical, sociological one, as it investigates the assumptions underlying various legal approaches and situates legal trends within larger social and historical contexts. The course will provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding differing conceptions of discrimination and equality in other areas of law, such as anti-discrimination law and constitutional law. It will also provide students with the background necessary to deal with discrimination problems in a clerkship or practice setting. Course materials include statutes and case law but also media accounts, law review articles, and research from other disciplines. Scheduled examination. V. Schultz.
