Tuesday, October 27 @ 12 Noon in BLB 109
Stephen Cox (Wilmer Hale; UHLC alumnus) and David Schwan (King & Spalding) will be discussing the topic of same-sex marriage.
Despite the title of this event, the discussion likely will be far from controversial. Mr. Schwan is an openly gay attorney who has developed a successful practice at King & Spalding and will thus be able to provide a unique perspective on the issues. Mr. Cox, on the other hand, will be discussing a position recently championed by former Solicitor General Ted Olson (Bush Administration), who has supported gay marriage, and believes that government needs to remove itself from the discussion. Thus, the event will truly be more of a discussion, rather than a debate.
