Understanding Civil Rights: What You Need to Know

August 27, 2023 by in Uncategorized

 Civil rights are essential personal rights protected under federal and state civil rights laws. These laws, including the U.S. Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Civil Rights Initiative, aim to safeguard individuals against unfair treatment. By granting equal and fair treatment in various settings, such as schools, workplaces, and public spaces, civil rights play a crucial role in maintaining justice.

Differentiating Civil Rights from Civil Liberties: It is important to clarify the distinction between civil rights and civil liberties, as these terms are often conflated. Civil rights encompass specific legal protections against discrimination, whereas civil liberties represent broader freedom-based rights guaranteed by the Constitution and other federal laws. For instance, a civil right would protect an individual from racial discrimination during a job interview, while a civil liberty would include the right to freedom of speech.

Understanding Civil Rights Lawyers

 A civil rights lawyer specializes in civil litigation and advocates for individuals whose civil rights have been violated, seeking justice for the harm they have suffered. These attorneys can represent victims of police brutality, prison abuse, discrimination, and other acts of injustice. Their role includes negotiating settlements on behalf of clients or representing them in civil court when a trial is necessary to restore justice. To build strong cases, civil rights lawyers conduct thorough research and investigations to support their clients’ claims.
