2017 CONSTITUTION DAY | Religious Rights or Unlawful Discrimination?
September 19, 2017 @ 12:00 am
Two experts in religious freedom law and anti-discrimination law will join the Dole Institute to discuss the difficult issues that arise when the assertion of religious beliefs conflicts with the rights of others. Does the constitutionally protected free exercise of religion trump state anti-discrimination laws that prohibit denying services based on a customer’s sexual orientation? Robin Fretwell Wilson, professor of law at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Camilla Taylor, senior counsel for Lambda Legal, explore this topic in a conversation moderated by Stephen McAllister, KU distinguished professor of law.
This event is the 2017 Constitution Day program, part of KU Civic Engagement and Leadership.
