LAW 5541 - Gender and the Law


Credit(s): 3
This course deals with the following issues: women’s de jure and de facto legal status in U.S. jurisdictions with some attention paid if time permits to the general legal status of women in European and Latin American countries. Topics to be covered include the history of suffrage and demands for equal rights for men and women, violence against women and violence committed by women, property rights, inheritance rights, reproductive rights, marriage, child custody, the definition of family, Title IX issues, employment discrimination, and gender issues in the legal profession. This course will not examine employment law or domestic relations law in as great depth as the Law Center’s existing courses in these areas. Rather it is intended to situate these issues within the greater context of the law of gender.
