Revisiting Sex: Gender & Sex Discrimination Fifty Years After the Civil Rights Act

On January 31 and February 1, 2014,  the Denver University Law Review will present its annual symposium: “Revisiting Sex: Gender & Sex Discrimination Fifty Years After the Civil Rights Act.” The Civil Rights Act of 1964 represents one of the most significant milestones of the twentieth century. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act protects individuals against employment discrimination on the bases of race, color, national origin, sex, and religion.

The Symposium will explore the meaning of “sex” under Title VII, present the role gender plays in the workplace, and review the shortcomings of the fifty-year-old Title VII framework. Panel topics include Caregiving in 2014; Intersectionalities; Access to Work, Pay Inequality, and Discrimination; Sexuality and Gender Issues; and Biases in Litigation and Amongst the Judiciary.

All are welcome, and CLE credit will be available.

DU Community Outreach: Student Leaders Develop Program to Connect Diverse High School Students to the Law

On April 20, 2013, the University of Denver Sturm College of Law will host forty-five high school students to participate in Spring Training for Youth and Legal Education (STYLE). STYLE was developed by student leaders of diversity programs at DU Law to connect high school students with the legal profession. The program targets high school students who would not normally have access to the legal community because of their socioeconomic background. The students were nominated by a teacher, counselor, or other community member based on level of motivation and promise. STYLE will introduce the nominated high school students to diverse legal professionals and law students. Students will engage in seminar discussions and participate in a mock trial. The DU Law Review will post select STYLE articles in April.
