Barrister’s Club MCLE on Federal Appeals Cases

  • Barrister’s Club MCLE on Federal Appeals Cases

Our appellate courts are in the midst of deciding one of this generation’s most important civil rights questions. In the fall of 2010, federal district courts found that California’s Proposition 8, the Military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act each violated the constitutional rights of gays and lesbians. All of these decisions are now on appeal undefined including two in the Ninth Circuit undefined and all may ultimately end up before the Supreme Court.

Learn what happened, what issues are on appeal, and what the appellate courts and Supreme Court might, could, and should do, from three very different perspectives at an MCLE hosted by the Appellate Section of the Barrister’s Club on January 26, 2011 from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm.

Speakers include:
  • Pamela Karlan, Professor, Stanford Law School
  • Co-Director, Stanford Supreme Court Litigation Clinic
  • Dr. John Eastman, Chair in Law and former Dean, Chapman University School of Law
  • Founding Director, Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence
  • Therese Stewart, Chief Deputy City Attorney of the City of San Francisco Intervenors in Perry v. Schwarzenegger

1.5 hours of MCLE credit are available. To register and learn more about this exciting MCLE, see the BASF website.
