A letter from our fine colleagues at the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law:
You are invited to submit an Article for possible inclusion in the Journal of Law and Health’s Annual Symposium: Issues of Reproductive Rights: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Policy. The Journal of Law and Health is a student-run publication dedicated to publishing innovative articles that offer diverse perspectives on the intersection between law, health and medicine.
Our Symposium is titled “Issues of Reproductive Rights: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Policy." The selection of this Symposium topic was a result of major developments in the area of Reproductive Rights in the past year. For example, state legislation in Texas, Ohio, or Arkansas severely restricting women's access to abortion. Another example would be the recent 10th Circuit decision in Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius which provided for-profit corporations with a right to challenge the Affordable Care Act’s so-called “contraceptive mandate” on the basis that a corporation is a “person” who can have and exercise its own religious beliefs. The Symposium aims to give judges, legislators, and academics the opportunity to present research that highlights the legal and ethical issues that may occur because of these developments.
If you are interested in submitting an abstract for consideration please find the instructions and important dates for submission below. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration and we look forward to hearing from you.
