Paul, Weiss Hosts Webinar on Implications of Supreme Court’s Dobbs Decision with Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke
- July 13, 2022
On July 11, over 350 Paul, Weiss employees, clients and alumni attended a CLE webinar, “Taking Action After Dobbs: A Conversation with Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke,” moderated by litigation partner Alexia Korberg, who served as co-counsel in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Professor Franke is one of the nation’s leading scholars on law, sexuality, race and religion. During their conversation, she and Alexia reflected on the implications of the Dobbs decision with respect to fundamental rights jurisprudence, state legislative power, and the LGBTQ rights movement, among other issues, as well as on what actions we can all take in this extraordinary historical moment.
Professor Franke sits on the Executive Committee of Columbia’s Institute for Research on Women, Gender and Sexuality and is the founder of the Law, Rights, and Religion Project think tank at Columbia Law School. In 2021, she launched the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) Project, a law and policy think tank that develops research, policy papers and expert guidance on an ERA to the U.S. Constitution and on the role of the ERA in advancing the larger cause of gender-based justice.
