Professor Wolff joins Civil Rights Attorney To Discuss Same-Sex Marriage

September 21, 2009

While more states move to legalize same-sex marriage, California has instead eliminated this right with the passage of Proposition 8. Penn Law Professor Tobias Barrington Wolff and civil rights attorney Eva Jefferson Paterson discuss the uncertain future of marriage equality in California during a program at UCLA's Hammer Museum. (Watch video. Run time 1:49.) Wolff served as co-chair of President Obama's LGBT advisory committee during the 2008 presidential campaign. He writes and teaches civil procedure and constitutional law. Paterson is the president and founder of the Equal Justice Society and former executive director at the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights.
