Categories: Constitutional Law Human Rights Human Rights

Instructor(s) Packard, Tamara, Perreault, Michele, Gendreau, Chad

This course will explore how case and statutory law
addresses sexual orientation and gender identity across legal disciplines,
including criminal law, employment law, family law, equal protection, privacy,
military law and free speech.  The course will include consideration of
how social, cultural and political forces shape, and are shaped by, legal
doctrine.  We will examine how debates around sexual orientation and
gender identity have played out in legislative arenas and at the ballot box as
well as in court.  Like other seminars, the course will require student
participation and the free exchange of ideas to be successful.
