486 - Discrimination Law: Principles and Practice LAWR III (3 hours)*
This LAWR III course will explore principles of discrimination law and allow students to put them into practice through fun written exercises and skill simulations. Topics of discussion will center upon federal anti-discrimination laws like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which will be explored from both a client counseling and litigation perspective. Diverse exercises will address a vast array of interesting topics from developing lawful appearance policies and recruiting practices at the workplace to conducting discovery. Students will even enjoy the unique opportunity to conduct a mock accessibility audit and to present an opening statement in a famous discrimination case. Students will conclude the course by giving a mock CLE presentation on a discrimination law topic of their choice. (The course has no pre-requisites but is closed to students who have previously taken 448 Diversity and Discrimination.)
* This course may be offered for 2 hours during some years.
