Tuesday, May 17, 2022
Noon - 1:00 p.m.
Zoom (link will be sent in confirmation email)
1 Professional Practice CLE credit available
The Government Law Center at Albany Law School is pleased to provide the fourth entry in the 2022 Warren M. Anderson Seminar Series. The series is free of charge and open to the public, but registration is required.
The session will focus on a growing wave of state laws designed to target constitutional rights while limiting judicial review. Last December, the United States Supreme Court left in place Texas S.B.8, an anti-abortion statute. The legal mechanism S.B.8 used to avoid early judicial review may be applied to a wide range of individual rights and areas subject to federal preemption. Copycat laws targeting gun rights, LGBTQ status, and other issues are starting to proliferate around the nation. A panel of three law professors and a civil rights attorney will discuss how these laws are designed and how effective they could be in accomplishing their goals.
