  • Description: This book responds to a sea change in federal civil rights law. Its focus is on the recent decisions on affirmative action, almost entirely rejecting it as a component of the admissions process at colleges and universities. This book analyzes the likely implication of these decisions for employment discrimination law. It also addresses other dramatic changes in federal law brought about by the Supreme Court, notably on the issues of abortion and religious liberty. This book aims to give students, professors, and practitioners a sense of the implications of these landmark decisions, whether right or wrong in the opinion of the reader.
