9:00–12:00      Bias and Discrimination in the Legal Profession

        Oregon played a key role in the march to this year’s landmark US Supreme Court decision granting same-sex marriage, the seminal civil rights issue of our time. We are honored to present an in-depth conversation with the judge and key lawyers sharing the history, strategy, and politics behind Oregon’s Rummel and Geiger marriage equality cases. Get behind-the-scenes personal and professional insights and stories of struggle and success. We will also explore the aftermath and real world implications of these rulings on other areas of law including employment, civil rights, and family law.
