Department Of Justice Manuals Concerning Title VI Of The Civil Rights Act Of 1964

Title VI Legal Manual

This manual provides an overview of the legal principles that govern Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It is an abstract of the general principles and issues that concern Federal agency enforcement, and does not and is not intended to provide a complete, comprehensive directory of all cases or issues related to Title VI. For example, this manual does not address all issues associated with private enforcement of Title VI. The manual cites not only cases interpreting Title VI, but Title IX and Section 504 as well. However while statutory interpretations of these laws overlap, they are not fully consistent, and this manual should not be considered to be an overview of any statute other than Title VI.
