The Supreme Court's holding in the landmark case of Roe v. Wade and its subsequent reasoning have been retooled for the last 47 years. A mere day prior to its anniversary, this panel, moderated by Wayne Law's Prof. Christopher Lund, will discuss the Constitutional aspects of the decision and the role of State laws regulating reproductive rights. The panel will explore what these laws mean and the long-term effects they have on the continuing validity of Roe v. Wade.

Guest speaker: Dr. Edward Goldman, U of M Law School and hospital

This panel is presented by Wayne State Law School's Women's Law Caucus; If, When, How; the Health Law Society; and American Constitution Society.

Lunch will be provided.
