As we approach the 50th anniversaries of several of our country's civil rights laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Immigration Act of 1965, scholars and practitioners are focused on recognizing our society's achievements while also taking a hard look at growing areas of modern race discrimination. The speakers will start off with providing participants with an overview of constitutional jurisprudence that gives us the body of federal law for racial equality, due process, and equal protection, beginning with the Reconstruction Amendments and updating to the current state of disparate impact standards in Supreme Court cases in a variety of subject areas.

Description continued below.
