Seminar - 3rd Year PriorityFull Year Course:
This seminar explores racial harassment in the workplace, including how frequently it occurs and its different forms. We discuss the legal framework and dispute-resolution processes for racial harassment, including their current shortcomings and ideas for more effectively remedying racial harassment. We also draw from sexual harassment research and law -- and consider how society and the justice system treat sexual harassment and racial harassment similarly and differently. In consultation with the professor, students will select a topic on racial harassment, sexual harassment, or another form of harassment to research and present in a power-point presentation and paper. In addition to the professor’s feedback on their research and writing, Professor Wysor of the Law School Writing Center will also provide feedback.
