The Religious Rights of Corporations in the Aftermath of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, presented by Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly

Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly (CLQ) invites you to attend their 2015 Symposium, “The Religious Rights of Corporations in the Aftermath of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby,” on Friday, February 20, from 1:00 to 5:00pm, at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in the Alumni Reception Center.

Hobby Lobby is an extremely important Supreme Court case that interpreted the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to allow closely held for-profit corporations to be exempt from a law that its owners had religious objections to if there is a less restrictive means of furthering that law’s interest. 

While some of our speakers strongly support the decision, including Eric Rassbach who represented Hobby Lobby, other speakers, like Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, find it deeply problematic for women’s rights. Come join us on Friday, February 20, and decide for yourself! Reception to follow at 5:00pm in the 2nd floor Atrium of 200 McAllister St.

MCLE Credit will be available for practicing attorneys! 

Speakers:

Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean at UC Irvine School of Law
Ashutosh Bhagwat, Professor at UC Davis School of Law
Alan Brownstein, Professor at UC Davis School of Law
Leslie Griffin, Professor at University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Elizabeth Pollman, Professor at Loyola Law School
