Civil Rights And Race Relations, Law Review Editor May 1978

Civil Rights And Race Relations, Law Review Editor

Vanderbilt Law Review

This Symposium honors both Professor Theodore A. Smedley and the publication he served as director, the Race Relations Law Reporter. As Professor Smedley's own introductory remarks point out, the publication of this Symposium in 1978 is particularly appropriate. First, it marks the tenth anniversary of the final issue of the Reporter, a journal whose importance and usefulness to the civil rights field is well known to all who have been active in the area. In publishing this Symposium, Vanderbilt Law School continues an important tradition in which Professor Smedley has played a major role.


The Old Order Changeth, Theodore A. Smedley May 1978

The Old Order Changeth, Theodore A. Smedley

Vanderbilt Law Review

The publication of this Symposium in 1978 marks the tenth anniversary of the final publication of the Race Relations Law Reporter. The timing of the Symposium is particularly appropriate for another reason as well. In 1968, the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorder, commonly known as the Kerner Commission,issued a report that had been requested by President Lyndon B.Johnson in July 1967. The Commission, which was to investigate the underlying causes of the riots that plagued America's larger cities during the 1960's, offered the pessimistic conclusion that "Our Nation is moving toward two societies, one black ...

Administrative Coordination In Civil Rights Enforcement: A Regional Approach, Charles M. Lamb May 1978

Administrative Coordination In Civil Rights Enforcement: A Regional Approach, Charles M. Lamb

Vanderbilt Law Review

The failure of traditional coordinative efforts among federal agencies suggests that new and different approaches are imperative. This Article has emphasized a regional approach for solving these problems. Experience has shown that even well-intentioned and capable administrators in Washington cannot alone ensure compliance with the federal civil rights laws. They must have the full support of key regional officials of the federal government, and they must have a certain degree of cooperation from state and local officials. One means of gaining this support and assistance is through the Councils, which bring together in one forum high-level federal, state, and local ...


A Comparative Review Of Public And Private Enforcement Of Title Vii Of The Civil Rights Act Of 1964, Robert Belton May 1978

A Comparative Review Of Public And Private Enforcement Of Title Vii Of The Civil Rights Act Of 1964, Robert Belton

Vanderbilt Law Review

The efforts of the EEOC, the Department of Justice, and other federal and state agencies during the first decade of enforcement have been the subject of a great deal of commentary and review. Much of this commentary has been critical. Private enforcement of Title VII has produced the major legal developments, but these efforts have received little attention in the literature. This Article therefore will present a comparative review of governmental and private enforcement efforts under Title VII. A brief overview of the historical efforts to eliminate employment discrimination prior to Title VII is necessary to place private enforcement efforts ...

Civil Rights And Legal Order: The Work Of A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr., Donald P. Kommers, Eugenia S. Schwartz Jan 1978

Civil Rights And Legal Order: The Work Of A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr., Donald P. Kommers, Eugenia S. Schwartz

Journal Articles

On October 11-12, 1978, Judge A. Leon Higginbotham, Jr.' delivered the Notre Dame Law School's Seventh Annual Civil Rights Lecture under the general title, "From Thomas Jefferson to Bakke: Race and the American Legal Process." It seems to us appropriate, therefore, on the occasion of the Higginbotham lecture, to consider his work as both historian and judge. Specifically, this article will serve the threefold purpose of (1) reviewing Matter of Color, (2) illustrating the author's use of history in two judicial opinions dealing with the rights of black Americans, and (3) reflecting upon the implications of Higginbotham's ...
