Civil Rights

Civil rights generally refers to the rights that individuals living in the United States have under the United States Constitution, certain federal laws, and certain state laws. Under the federal constitution, the Bill of Rights refers to the first ten amendments of the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to address concerns about the balance between the federal government and a concern for the protection of individual rights. Currently there are 27 amendments to the Constitution, some of which deal with additional protections for individuals. The Law Office believes that it is every individual's justified right to take action when such rights are violated. Please read below to learn about the Bill of Rights and the Civil Rights Movement.
