2016 Regent University Law Review Symposium

In partnership with the Regent Law Federalist Society, on October 1, Regent Law hosted the 2016 Regent University Law Review Symposium, titled "First Amendment post-Obergefell: the Clash of Enumerated & Unenumerated Rights." The symposium's first panel was on education and the effect of the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Hodges opinion on religious universities and law schools. Participation in the panel included LAW dean, Michael Hernandez; Canadian Counsel of Christian Charities' Barry Bussey; professor at Duquesne Law, Bruce Ledewitz; and professor at St. Mary's Law, Bill Piatt.

A second panel focused on Obergefell's effect on the First Amendment rights of religious objectors in for-profit companies, non-profit entities and churches. Speakers on this topic included Family Research Council's Travis Weber; First Liberty Institute's Chelsey Youman; and Alliance Defending Freedom's Caleb Dalton.

This year marks the Law Review's celebration of its 25th anniversary. Its first issue was published in 1991, and since then, the Law Review has completed 28 volumes encompassing 390 articles. More.
