The year 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, landmark legislation prohibiting employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. By its enactment, notions of equality were more deeply embedded in United States public law.
The Law Schools of St. John’s University and New York University are very proud to present the collaborative effort assessing the past, present and future of Title VII.
This two-day symposium will include the following topics:
- The historical origins of Title VII and its current effectiveness
- Reforms or amendments of Title VII in terms of its scope, implementation or interpretation
- Important cultural, sociological, and societal changes wrought by Title VII
