Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course examines the nature and scope of various federal civil rights laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1866, the Enforcement Act of 1870, the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As we explore these statutes, two overarching inquiries will anchor our discussion. First, what is the role of the courts in defining the meaning and extent of these rights? And second, what role have social movements played in this narrative? This is a course that will interest students of American history, constitutional law, American political development, statutory interpretation, Democracy and voting rights, and/or race.
Note This course may offer writing credit.
