The American Constitution Society announces its upcoming conference, Liberty/Equality: The View from Roe’s 40th and Lawrence’s 10th Anniversaries, to take place January 18-19, 2013, at the UCLA School of Law. ACS is co-sponsoring the conference with the UCLA School of Law, the Williams Institute, the Yale Information Society Project, and the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice. As we commemorate the anniversaries of two landmark Supreme Court decisions, Roe and Lawrence, the conference will bring together leading experts on gender and sexuality to analyze the past, situate current conflicts, and contemplate the future. The conference will feature panels on sexual freedom, constitutional frameworks, social movements, religious liberty, families, and information.
