Civil Rights Law

Navigation:  Home > Employment Law > Civil Rights Law


Civil Rights Law or civil liberties derive themselves in the original Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution, and have been expanded since with the several amendments to the Constitution, most notably the 13th through 15th Amendments, though many might argue that for the first time in American history, our civil liberties are no longer expanding, but might, in fact, be narrowing with the Patriot Act.  Civil liberties deals primarily with those constitutional amendment that give Americans the right to freedom of religion, speech, to peaceably assemble, to carry arms, to be free of discrimination, and the rights to be free of search or seizures without probable cause. Each of these will be discussed in further detail in other sections.
