Yale Law School Deputy Dean Reva Siegel is a Constitutional Law scholar whose work often explores and critiques our interpretation of the basic assumptions of democratic governance: questions of law and equality, for instance, or how the powerful confluence of representative government and popular culture may play out in the courts of America.
On Tuesday, February 10 at 5 p.m., Siegel will discuss the women’s rights movement and its role in forcing the abortion question into the courts and into law when she presents “Roe’s Roots: The Woman’s Rights Claims that Engendered Roe v. Wade” in a free public lecture at Cleveland State University’s Cleveland-Marshall College of Law. The College is located at the corner of East 18th Street and Euclid Avenue.
Siegel is the law school’s 86th Cleveland-Marshall Visiting Scholar. Her lecture offers one free hour of Continuing Legal Education credit.
Siegel’s publications include THE CONSTITUTION IN 2020 (edited with J. Balkin, 2009); PROCESSES OF CONSTITUTIONAL DECISIONMAKING (with Brest, Levinson, Balkin & Amar, 2006) and DIRECTIONS IN SEXUAL HARASSMENT LAW (edited with C. A. MacKinnon, 2004).
Her BA, MPhil, and JD are from Yale University. She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and is active in the American Society for Legal History, the American Association of Law Schools, and the American Constitution Society, in the national organization and as faculty advisor of Yale’s chapter.
