Los Angeles: After Windsor: The Next Stage in Gay Marriage Litigation
September 17, 2014 6:00pm - 8:00pm
In celebration of Constitution Day, the Stanford Law School Constitutional Law Center (CLC) and Los Angeles Alumni Chapter are hosting a cocktail reception at the JW Marriott at L.A. LIVE.
Not only is the venue special, but we are excited to be able to have you meet Jud Campbell, the Executive Director of the CLC, who will discuss the programs and achievements of the Constitutional Law Center. We are especially excited to be able to introduce you to William Baude, a former fellow with the Center and now Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School who will facilitate a discussion of "After Windsor: The Next Stage in Gay Marriage Litigation." Windsor struck down the federal definition of marriage in the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), lending serious confusion to what happens when someone gets married to a same-sex spouse in one state and then wants that marriage recognized in another state.
We hope to see you and look forward to enjoying a lively evening of conversation about a critical topic of concern to us all. Appetizers and beverages will be provided. Registration is free, and guests are welcome. Kindly register by Friday, September 12.
