Loyola Marymount Hosts Discrimination in Sports Conference

West coast readers may appreciate news of this upcoming conference at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles called "Discrimination Issues in Sports: Race, Gender & Sexual Orientation." The program includes a wide range of panelists, including scholars, lawyers, and regulators, with connections to a diverse array of sporting practices at the professional, collegiate, and Olympic levels. Title IX will surely be invoked by those addressing sex and sexual orientation discrimination in sports offered by educational institutions; in fact, one panelist is from the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.
