HS 528F — Law and Social Justice: Constructions of Race and Ethnicity and Their Consequences

Meets for one-half semester and yields one-half course credit.

Explores race in American society from the framework of civil rights law. Using the case method, it attempts to facilitate a multicultural inquiry into antidiscrimination law by presenting civil rights issues as integrated social problems. Though the cases are organized around the traditional civil rights categories of education and housing, it also offers exploration of emerging areas such as the rights of language minorities and people with disabilities. Usually offered every year.
