Employment Discrimination

In this course, we will study the major federal ant-discrimination statutes, focusing on three primary questions. First, what is discrimination? Second, how can - and should -- discrimination be proven? Third, given proof of discrimination, what remedies are appropriate? Connected to these doctrinal questions are theoretical and policy questions about the efficacy of employment discrimination law, the goals of employment discrimination law, and the appropriate institutional roles of courts, legislatures, and regulatory bodies in shaping the law. Throughout, we will also examine how attorneys use employment discrimination concepts in practice, discussing lawyering strategies from litigation, counseling, and risk management perspectives.
