What Obergefell v. Hodges Should Have Said


On Friday, April 15th, the Yale Information Society Project will hold a conference at Yale Law School entitled, What Obergefell v. Hodges Should Have Said. 

Legal scholars will present their versions of how the U.S. Supreme Court should have written the Obergefell opinion, which held that the Constitution requires states to recognize same-sex marriage.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School; the Yale Chapters of the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society; and is also supported by a grant from the Oscar M. Ruebhausen Fund.
