Strategies in Employment Discrimination
Strategies in Employment Discrimination Practice. This seminar applies the legal principles studied in Employment Discrimination Law (Law 232) to a semester-long, simulated practice problem. The goal of the seminar is to reinforce legal concepts studied in the basic course, and to introduce through task-oriented exercises the real-world dimensions of an employment discrimination practice, including decisions about which cases to take, what facts must be gathered, what steps must precede the filing of a lawsuit, and what legal theory or theories should be pursued. Students will engage in interviews, negotiations and strategy sessions, and will prepare various file memos, letters, and an agency complaint. The course is co-taught with an experienced practitioner. Class meets every other week for two hours. Students must either have previously taken, or be concurrently enrolled in, Law 232.
Please note that course organization and content may vary substantially from semester to semester and descriptions are not necessarily professor specific. Please contact the instructor directly if you have particular course-related questions.
