Local Legal Community in Uproar Over "Anti-Gay Marriage" North Dakota Law Review Issue
It's pretty rare that the contents of a law review will make headlines in the local press, but that's what happened in the Grand Forks Herald (North Dakota) newspaper. [link, free registration required] Why? Because the latest issue of the North Dakota Law Review features a "future of the family" symposium that includes articles from religious right activists and scholars. Five of the six articles are written by authors who are affiliated with church-based law schools or organizations that oppose gay marriage.
Protests from North Dakota lawyers have been so passionate and widespread that North Dakota Law School Dean Paul LeBel posted a disclaimer on the school’s Web site assuring the legal community that “the university and the School of Law are welcoming and inclusive educational communities.” [JH]
