The faces of today’s important and developing civil rights issues include veterans, same-sex couples, those with mental illness, and individuals who are vulnerable to human trafficking. Delve into the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), its legislative history, and the substance of the state and federal laws. Three judges explore how to create better outcomes for mentally ill offenders. Veterans’ hot topics, such as Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), the ADA, and civil and criminal law case issue-spotting are covered. Review federal sex trafficking statutes and examine case examples, while learning about immigration options for victims of trafficking. A legal ethics session on social networking helps you understand advertising and solicitation rules in the context of social media, shows you how to keep your social media conduct ethical, and provides strategies for reducing the risk of unethical online activity.
Cosponsored by the Civil Rights Section.
