This online Forum will be on the topic of:
“Mini-Law School: Supreme Court 2020 Review of Major Cases, A Humanist’s View”
Professor Leland Chan will look at the Supreme Court’s major decisions during the 2019-2020 term, which involved DACA, discrimination against LGBTQ persons in employment, expansion of religious liberty rights, abortion, and much more. Professor Chan will try to put the decisions into legal context for non-lawyers, and for this audience, offer a humanist perspective of the justices and how they decide.
Professor Chan is an attorney who teaches constitutional law at Golden Gate University. He also teaches classes to the general public who have an interest in the constitution and the decisions of the Supreme Court.
