SCOTUS Revisits Abortion: Legal Strategies in Dobbs Oral Arguments

December 6th, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

On December 1, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a case involving a Mississippi law that would ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Court’s ruling in this case has the potential to overturn the nearly fifty-year precedent of Roe v. Wade. Just days after oral arguments, the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study will host amici and other law scholars to discuss the legal strategies used in the case. Please join us for the discussion, which will be held over Zoom, on Monday, December 6th at 12 pm ET.

  • Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO, Americans United for Life
  • Sherif Girgis, Associate Professor of Law, Notre Dame Law School

Sponsored by the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, and Temple University Beasley School of Law.
