LAW 318 - Law and Sexuality

This course explores the ways in which the law constructs and regulates sexuality. Subjects covered include the criminalization of sexual activity, discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity (in both public and private spheres), and family law, including marriage, alternatives to marriage, and parental rights. 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.
