Legal scholars speaking at this week's Equality Forum 2009

Equality Forum 2009:

"Each spring Equality Forum presents its Global GLBT Event. The Annual Equality Forum comprises seven days of substantive programs, parties and special events."

John G. Culhane, a law professor at Widener University, has been blogging about each day's activities. Tomorrow, American University law professor Nancy Polikoff will participate in the Same-Sex Families Panel. "Her book and the blog it spun off, Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage: Valuing All Families Under the Law," says Culhane, "opened my eyes to broader problems of equity that come from exalting marriage over all other forms of familial association."

On 05/01/09, the Equality Forum will host a National Legal Panel that will examine "the role local, state and federal courts play in our fight for GLBT civil rights." Participants include law professors Nan Hunter, Chai Feldblum, and Tobias Wolff, and attorneys Hayley Gorenberg of Lambda Legal and Chris Anders of the ACLU.
