The Future of Sexual & Reproductive Rights
The Yale Law School Conference will assemble leading thinkers, cultural observers and journalists who focus on these subjects. They will offer and test a range of cutting-edge insights about what could and should develop in these critical areas. Part of their work will be an examination of the pressures that are brought to bear on news media when covering abortion or same-sex marriage, the attempt to require that both points of view are given equal weight and whether journalists have a duty to test conflicting claims. The Conference is co-sponsored by the Law Schoolís Law and Media Program (LAMP). It will begin long before anyone arrives in New Haven, with thought-pieces posted by panelists in September on the well-known legal blog, Balkinization.
Schedule: The Conference will begin at 2:00 on Friday October 10th, will include dinner programs on Friday and Saturday night, and will conclude with lunch on Sunday, October 12th. Click here for an outline of events.
