643 - Civil Rights Remedies (2 hours)*
This course will examine how the judiciary should respond to race discrimination and the efficacy and competency of federal courts in redressing race discrimination. The class will take as a given that a legal violation has been proven; the question becomes how the courts should respond. Students will examine such issues as voting districts based on race; compelled integration of public housing; compensatory education programs in formerly segregated school systems; affirmative action programs; and the question of whether any judicially-imposed remedy is appropriate for race discrimination.
* This course may be offered for 3 hours during some years.
