Course Description

LAW 318 - Law and Sexuality

This course explores the ways in which law constructs and regulates sexuality.  Potential topics include employment discrimination, sex discrimination arguments for sexual orientation and gender identity, transgender issues, public employment, constitutional claims, and definitions of family beyond the marital bond that is now available to both same-sex and different-sex couples across the country. In exploring these subjects, the class pays attention to how the law affects the lives of sexual minorities, and how sexual minorities and their allies influence the law. The course will delve in depth into the legal issues affecting LGBT childbearing and childrearing, both inside and outside of marriage.
