The Origins of Civil Rights  

Many civil rights are the result of struggle and resistance. Many laws have been passed to address the concerns of citizens who protested and lobbied for legislative change. The following are only a few examples of these laws:  

 

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 

  • The Voting Rights Act of 1965 

  • The Age Discrimination Act of 1975  

 

These laws were enacted to expand the rights and privileges of people in the United States. However, these laws are often violated by individuals and legal entities in positions of authority. If you think your civil rights were violated, the best thing you can do is retain an experienced and skilled civil rights lawyer.  

What Is the Role of a Civil Rights Lawyer?  

Civil rights lawyers stand up for clients who have been denied equal treatment under the law. Many civil rights lawyers represent clients who have suffered discrimination based on their race, religion, gender identity, and other elements. Law enforcement officials often are involved in civil rights cases when individual officers and departments deny citizens their constitutional rights. Also, students and adults disabilities often face discrimination at educational institutions. The Americans Disabilities Act is a federal law that protects U.S. citizens with disabilities. A civil rights lawyer brings lawsuits on behalf of clients who have been deprived of their civil rights.  

 

A civil rights lawyer will engage in many different activities while representing clients who have experienced civil rights violations. Legal research and writing are two important skills that every civil rights lawyer must perform constantly. Also, a skilled civil rights lawyer will attend court hearings and argue motions before a judge. Settlement negotiation is another important skill that civil rights lawyers utilize to benefit their clients.  

 

Staying informed of important changes in federal, state, and local laws is also another task performed by civil rights lawyers. An individual whose civil rights have been violated will hire a civil rights lawyer to file legal claims against the responsible party. Civil rights lawyers develop case strategies, depose parties, and participate in trials.
