LAW646 Gender Bias and the Law

Course Description

This course studies both the effect of gender on the law and of the law on gender, or how our society perceives gender. Using cases found in the more standard categories of law, such as employment discrimination, constitutional rights, and criminal sentencing, the course looks beyond these categories to the overall structure and assumptions of law to how the law is used to maintain societal assumptions about gender.
