Course Description

601:xxx. New Jersey Law Against Discrimination: Civil Rights and Practice (2) S



First passed in 1945, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (“NJLAD”) is one of the oldest and strongest anti-discrimination provisions in the country. Unless you regularly litigate under this statutory regime, few truly appreciate its protections. For anyone interested in practicing employment law or civil rights in New Jersey, this course is aimed at getting you ready for practice. Throughout the semester, you will learn the substantive provisions of NJLAD, developing and maintaining client relationships, negotiating and settling cases, and civil practice in the District of New Jersey and state courts. After acquiring necessary foundational knowledge, we will focus on practicable considerations when litigating and develop short writing samples for use in the job market.
