The year 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, landmark legislation that fundamentally altered the landscape of employment relations by prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. It is part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which also barred discrimination in public accommodations, public facilities and voting. By its enactment, notions of equality were more deeply embedded in United States public law.

Publication opportunities will be available in the: St. John’s Law Review, the Journal of Civil Rights and Economic Development, and the St. John’s Journal of International and Comparative Law.
