In her introduction to these informative videos, Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer of the Northern District of Illinois describes employment discrimination law as one of the most dynamic fields of federal law. Together Judge Pallmeyer and Judge Bernice Donald of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals examine examples and interpretations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the various amendments and federal statutes that have expanded protections to various protected classes.

At the heart of the discussion is the defining of seven key terms of art: discrimination, causation, harassment, accommodation, retaliation, conciliation, and remediation.
