The UC Davis Law Review will host “Not Equal Yet: Building Upon Foundations of Relationship Equality” from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday at King Hall.

The event will feature panel discussions by legal scholars in constitutional law, family law and religion addressing the legal framework surrounding same-sex marriage. Topics will include constitutional rights, religious exemptions, family structure and relationship recognition, according to a news release.

Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the UC Irvine School of Law and one of the nation’s most prominent and influential constitutional law scholars, will serve as keynote speaker.

Among those scheduled to be panelists are Vikram Amar, Alan Brownstein and Courtney Joslin, all of the UCD School of Law; David Cruz of the University of Southern California Gould School of Law; and Tobias Wolff of the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

The conference is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP at http://lawreview.law.ucdavis.edu/symposia/2014/index.html. A full schedule and list of speakers is available at the same site.

Minimum continuing legal education credit is available for attorneys who attend.

    With Tobias Wolff on the panel it will elevate to an intellectual and scholarly debate. He is a paragon of legal theory and knowledge and will bring to the panel a heightened sense of rationality. An excellent choice by the organizers.
