Professor Ann McGinley Quoted in The New York Times

Ann C. McGinley is a William S. Boyd Professor of Law at UNLV.

She was quoted in a July 11 New York Times article titled, "Money, Sex and Las Vegas Pool Parties."

In the article, about the hiring process for casino pools and day clubs, Professor McGinley said, "Everyone assumes that these jobs have to be this way. They know what they are getting into, but that doesn’t make the process legal." She continued, "I do believe that in another city a woman could win one of these suits. Here in Vegas? I’m not sure."

Professor McGinley is an internationally recognized scholar in the area of employment law, employment discrimination and disability law and a leader in Multidimensional Masculinities Theory, an emerging discipline that applies masculinities theory from social sciences to legal interpretation.
