Law 318 - Law, Gender, and Sexuality

Faculty listed in alphabetical order – please see faculty specific description for requisite information.

S. Minter J. Samuels


General Course Description:

This course explores the rapidly-evolving ways in which the law constructs, regulates, and concerns gender and 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 gender and sexuality, discrimination because of gender and sexual orientation, and emerging topics such as religious exemptions to non-discrimination laws, transgender issues, and criminal justice issues. Class materials include Eskridge, Hunter, & Joslin, Sexuality, Gender, and the Law (4th ed. 2018) plus supplemental materials.
