Civil Rights

The National Law Review provides recent news on the latest civil rights issues in the United States and abroad. Our coverage of U.S.-based legal news includes protections included in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and actions arising out of these protections, primarily in the workplace. The Civil Rights Act outlaws discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. We include LBGTQ protections in the workplace, sex stereotyping and discrimination in the workplace, disability rights, accessibility to structures as well as web accessibility, transgender rights in the workplace and at educational institutions. We also feature commentary on the impact of discrimination in housing.

For hourly updates on the latest in legal, legislation, government regulation & compliance, litigation, court procedures, and corporate law news, be sure to follow the National Law Review Twitter feed and sign up for complimentary e-news bulletins.
