Jerome Greene Hall, Room 102A

Please join the Federalist Society for a discussion on U.S. family law with Professor Helen Alvaré of Antonin Scalia Law School and Professor Cynthia Godsoe of Brooklyn Law School (and visiting professor at CLS).

Professor Alvaré will discuss the thesis and findings of her new book, Putting Children’s Interests First in U.S. Family Law and Policy: With Power Comes Responsibility. Professor Alvaré details the rise of a federal policy of 'sexual expressionism', which prioritizes adults' interests over children's welfare. She describes the costs to children in the areas of family structure and stability, and the federal programs attempting to ameliorate the situation of non-marital children.

Professor Godsoe will respond to and critique Professor Alvaré’s remarks.

Non-pizza lunch will be served.
