Marriage Discussion at Roger Williams Law School

I was asked to post this... if you can go, you should- David Wilson is a wonderful speaker.

"On Friday, March 28, the Alliance at Roger Williams School of Law is hosting a symposium entitled "The Culture of Same-Sex Marriage in New England." This Symposium offers a unique opportunity to learn more about issues surrounding the same-sex marriage debate. The Symposium will begin with a keynote address by David Wilson, Plaintiff in Goodridge v. Dept. of Public Health and board member of Mass Equality and the Human Rights Campaign. Following the keynote the Symposium will have two panels: the first panel will discuss the current debate for same-sex marriage in Rhode Island, and the second panel will more generally discuss the arguments for marriage as opposed to civil unions, informed by the experiences of other New England states.

The Symposium will be held from 12:00-4:45 and will include lunch. Participation is free for anyone attending. There is a $25 fee for those requesting the 5 Rhode Island CLE credits that the Symposium grants. You can register online and find more information about the event at http://law.rwu.edu/marriagelaw/.

Questions can be addressed to Roger Williams Law School Director of Diversity Programs, Lydia Hanhardt at 401-254-4522, lhanhardt@rwu.edu or to Alliance co-Presidents Brad Pelletier (bpelletier519@barrister.rwu.edu) or Kim Ahern (kahern600@barrister.rwu.edu).
