Event Title:  DukeNY - After DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) & Prop 8 Discussion and Reception
Duke Alumni Faculty Fellow Speaker Program Featuring Duke Law Professor Neil Siegel '94, AM'95
Date:   Apr 17, 2014
Time:   6:30PM - 8:30PM ET
Location:   Gibson Dunn, 200 Park Avenue, New York, NY
Description:  

The U.S. Supreme Court recently declared unconstitutional the Defense of Marriage Act's limitation of marriage to opposite-sex couples for all purposes under federal law. At the same time, the Court brought an end to California's Proposition 8, which barred same-sex couples from marrying in that state, while deciding not to decide the broader question of whether all such laws violate the United States Constitution. What do these decisions portend for the future of same-sex marriage in America? What was it like to litigate the Prop 8 case? Come hear two Dukies – one, a Duke graduate and current professor at Duke Law School and the other, a Duke Law School graduate and leading litigator in the federal courts – address these questions and share their insights.

Join Duke alumni, parents and friends for this Forever Learning Faculty Fellow program, generously hosted by Gibson Dunn.
