The KU Federalist Society, KU OutLAWS and Allies, and KC Legal are pleased to announce this year’s inaugural event, “The Case for Same Sex Marriage: Practicum and Practice.” We are fortunate to have two respected speakers who will each give their arguments for the legalization of same-sex marriage. KU Federalist Society is proud to welcome Professor Dale Carpenter. Professor Carpenter is an Earl R. Larson Professor of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Law at University of Minnesota.
He will be discussing the “Conservative Case for Gay Marriage” with Dale Schowengerdt. Schowengerdt is a seasoned litigator who has worked with the Alliance Defense Fund since 2003. Schowengerdt has been involved in dozens of marriage cases, including challenges to the federal Defense of Marriage Act (“DOMA”) and challenges to several state marriage amendments. He is currently representing Congressman Lamar Smith, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, in a case against DOMA in the First Circuit Court of Appeals.
In true KU Federalist Society tradition, Chipolte will be served for lunch. We hope you will join us on Tuesday, September 27th from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in room 104 for this exciting and informative discussion. Please be sure to invite your 1L friends as this will be a rare opportunity to receive information from these diverse student associations. Samantha Horner is the President of KU Federalist Society.
