Join the PBA Women in the Profession Commission for a discussion on reproductive health care in the context of early American case law.

Constitutional and historical scholars take a look at our jurisprudence to see when abortion “entered the chat” and to see how laws surrounding access to reproductive health care changed in pre-Roe case law. 

Don your law school hats and get excited for this constitutional law class style CLE!

This entire Dobbs series was inspired by a podcast of Jonathan Van Ness’ (Getting Curious).  The planning committee is honored and excited to have the scholar from the episode, as well as two notable published scholars in this realm, join this program to discuss American reproductive case law history.

Co-sponsored with the PBA Women in the Profession Commission .

Recorded in March 2023.
