LAW 318

Law and Sexuality

Constitutional & Public Law, Law & Sexuality

This course explores the rapidly-evolving ways in which the law constructs, regulates, and concerns sexuality. The course is largely an advanced constitutional law course (equal protection and liberty); we will also examine statutes, regulations, and other sources of law. We will focus on criminal prohibitions related to sex, discrimination because of gender and sexual orientation, and emerging topics such as religious exemptions to non-discrimination laws and criminal justice issues. Class materials include case law, case documents, legal and social science scholarship, legislative and regulatory materials, and press accounts.
