Current Issues in LGBTQ Non-Discrimination Law

CLE credit: 
1.5 free hours pending
Weight: 
-10

The road to equality and inclusion for LGBTQ individuals has been a long one, and recent legal developments at the local, state and federal level suggest that the journey is far from over. Panelists will discuss current issues pertaining to LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections including whether Title VII’s prohibitions on employment discrimination extend to LGBTQ individuals, a matter that will be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court on October 8th and likely decided by the Court by June 2020; ongoing religious-based challenges to protections afforded to LGBTQ people by state and local nondiscrimination laws, a matter that was addressed but by no means resolved by the Supreme Court’s 2018 decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop; the current status of state and local non-discrimination laws that protect LGBTQ individuals from discrimination, including information on the ongoing efforts to expand these protections in Ohio and elsewhere; and other related issues.

400 Years After: The Continuing Impact of Slavery

CLE credit: 
3 Hours Pending
Weight: 
-10

This continuing legal education (CLE) program seeks to educate attorneys about the role that law played in installing, implementing, and ending the enslavement of black Africans. It will also examine the ethics of the attorneys who owned slaves and those who enforced the laws that helped to maintain the institution of slavery. The speakers will examine slavery’s impact on laws in place to prevent medical research on human subjects; the constitutional provisions that may be used to justify reparations; the laws that re-enforced the institution of slavery; and the labor laws that have led to a professional sports regime that mimics slavery. In addition to the presentations, the members of the audience will have the opportunity to listen to parts of the New York Times’ 1619 Project, marking the 400-year anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the colony of Virginia.
