The Constitution of the Family: Emerging Issues (21778). 2 or 3 units. This course will examine constitutional law concerning reproduction and the family. How does the law protect and support decisions about parenting and family care, in and out of marriage? What competing understandings of liberty, equality, and the role of government shape judgments in this field? On what beliefs about biology, family, and community do these judgments rest? How might the law better take account of inequalities based on gender/sexuality/race/class? The course will address topics including: pregnancy and child care in the workplace, abortion, same-sex marriage and parental rights, the nonmarital family. We will focus on constitutional law with some coverage of related bodies of civil rights law. Self-scheduled examination or paper option with permission of instructors. R.B. Siegel and L. Greenhouse.
