NASCAR Negotiation Competition in North Carolina

NASCAR_4C (2.17.11

NASCAR and Charlotte School of Law are proud to co-host the inaugural NASCAR Negotiation Competition in North Carolina (“NC3”) from November 13 – 15, 2015 in Charlotte, NC.

Students from regional law schools will be invited to participate in this first-of-its-kind legal negotiation competition.  The competition will focus on legal and business issues which arise frequently in NASCAR and motorsports generally.  Some of most experienced and respected motorsports attorneys in America will serve as the competition judges, and there will be networking opportunities available to participating students, including a NASCAR reception on the evening of the 13th.

NASCAR and Charlotte School of law are excited to present this practice-based experience for law students.   To our knowledge, this marks the first time that a law school and a professional sports governing body have partnered to present such a competition.  We hope you will join us this November.

The 50th Anniversary of The Civil Rights Act of 1964

With less than a month left on the Library of Congress’ exhibit “The Civil Rights Act of 1964: A Long Struggle for Freedom”, it seemed appropriate to remind everyone who may be traveling to D.C. in the next few weeks that it’s their last chance to view this exhibit, which recognizes the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 .  This post originally ran in November of 2014.

In case you are visiting Washington, DC in the coming year, plan a visit to the Library of Congress’ new exhibit “The Civil Rights Act of 1964: A Long Struggle for Freedom.” The exhibit which recognizes the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is open to the public Monday-Saturday 8:30 am- 4:30 pm until September 12, 2015.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (PL 88-352, 78 Stat. 241, enacted July 2, 1964) outlawed discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin.  It provided injunctive relief against discrimination in public accommodations and segregation in public education. It enforced the constitutional right to vote, ending unequal voter-registration requirements. The law is a landmark piece of civil rights legislation.

The Library of Congress’ free exhibit “The Civil Rights Act of 1964: A Long Struggle for Freedom” highlights the legal and legislative challenges and victories leading to its passage. The exhibit highlights the individuals, both prominent leaders and private citizens, who participated in the process. The exhibit contains more than 200 items from correspondence to photographs, newspapers, legal briefs, drawings and posters. It also includes audio-video stations throughout the exhibit showing film clips of dramatic events related to the civil rights era such as protests, sit-ins, boycotts and other public actions. An introductory film narrated by Julian Bond focuses on the significance of the legislation.  Another video explores the impact of the Civil Rights Act. There are six themes in the exhibit: Prologue, Segregation Era, World War II and the Post War Years, Civil Rights Era, Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Impact.

Much of the exhibit’s documentation comes from NAACP Records in the Library’s Manuscript Division and the Prints and Photographs Division. The audio-visual materials come from the Library’s American Folklife Center’s Civil Rights History Project and the Library’s National Audio-Visual Conservation Center.  Newman’s Own Foundation with additional support from HISTORY® provided funding for the exhibition. Further details about the exhibit can be found at http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/civil-rights-act/
