Comparative Employment Discrimination

This course will provide an introduction to the landscape of U.S. employment discrimination law along with its theoretical development, and then proceed to compare its structures to that of a variety of other jurisdictions. Attention will be paid to the challenges of conducting comparative transnational studies and the global struggle for social justice. The final grade will be based upon classroom participation, an in-class paper presentation, and a final paper of 15 pages in which the student compares an aspect of the U.S. employment discrimination system to that of another jurisdiction.
