Civil Rights Law

The laws associated with Civil Rights protect the enforceable rights or privileges that could result in an action or injury if interfered with by another. 

Examples of civil rights could include such things as: freedom of speech, press, assembly, the right to vote, freedom from involuntary servitude, and the right to equality in public places. Discrimination occurs when the civil rights of an individual are denied or interfered with because of their membership in a particular protected group or class. Statutes on the state and federal levels have been enacted to prevent discrimination based on a persons race, sex, religion, age, previous condition of servitude, physical limitation, national origin and in some instances, sexual preference.
