Course Description:
This seminar will meet on five Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 7:55 pm. Dates to be determined.

This reading seminar will focus on select commentaries and rewritten opinions from the text Feminist Judgments: Rewritten Opinions of the United States Supreme Court. The rewritten opinions seek to illustrate how decision- makers with feminist viewpoints could have arrived at different decisions using different reasoning in critical Supreme Court cases despite the restrictions of stare decisis. The seminar will discuss the implications of the original decisions and how the application of feminist theory and reasoning can change law and reveal inherent biases in the justice system.
