does federal law override state law?

specifically: would "Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964" override the "New Jersey Law Against Discrimination" Please provide sources and does a school board's override "Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964" and "New Jersey Law Against Discrimination"? thank you sooooooo much!

Federal laws overrides state law which overrides local law as long as the higher law does not touch areas that are exclusively regulated by the lower levels.
A school board cannot override either "Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964" or "New Jersey Law Against Discrimination", but depending on the situation these laws might not be applicable. If federal and state law do not agree on a specific case it might make sense to ask the courts which one is applicable and to challenge the other.
Most times it does. I will research and get back to ya...
depends on what court you are in...state law must be constitutional within the guidelines of the federal Constitution
pretty sure it does, because of recent things states have passed, but then they turn around and say it doesn't matter, because federal law over-rules it.
You will find it in the U.S. Constitution that state can have laws not regulated by the federal government. If a state puts a stiffer sentance on a federal law, then the state law supersedes federal law.
