Dale Carpenter is organizing a seminar on Friday, February 15, 2008 in Houston posing the question, “Is Gay Marriage Conservative?” Sponsored by the South Texas Law Review, the symposium will take place from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. The list of panelists reads like a who’s who of conservatives and libertarians who have offered thoughtful perspectives on social issues.
In addition to Dale, presentes include Gerard V. Bradley of Notre Dame Law School, Jesse H. Choper of the University of California Law School/Berkeley, Teresa Stanton Collett of the University of St. Thomas School of Law, David Frum of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Charles Murray also of AEI, Robert F. Nagel of the University of Colorado Law School, Jonathan Rauch of The Brookings Institution (author of Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights, and Good for America) and John Yoo of University of California Law School/Berkeley.
With such a great group of speakers, I wish I could make it to Houston for the event!
It all takes place at the South Texas College of Law, 1303 San Jacinto. The event is free. If you can make it that day, please register online. You can read more about the speakers here. And read their abstracts here.
