This course examines sex/gender-based discrimination as defined by the U.S. Constitution, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and other relevant federal laws. We will explore the strengths and weaknesses of these legal frameworks as well as the most important procedural tools for anti-discrimination legal advocacy, including individual, pattern and practice, and class action devices. Class discussions will focus on the practical considerations of litigating gender discrimination cases as well as historic, social, economic, and psychological factors.
