Study on Impact of a Constitutional ban on Same-Sex Marriage in Indiana

UnknownIndiana law currently bans same-sex marriage, but in 2011, opponents of same-sex marriage and civil unions passed a proposal to write that ban into the Indiana Constitution.

25 Indiana Law Students investigated the legal consequences that would follow if Indiana wrote a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions into the state constitution.  Their investigation found that 614 laws would be affected, including probate laws and family laws.  

See Marcia Oddi, Ind. Law-"Opponents of Indiana Ban on Gay Marriage Cite Concerns About Impact on 614 Laws," The Indiana Law Blog, Nov. 27, 2012.
