Program:

This presentation is a follow-up to the May Law Day CLE on the Legacy of Roe v. Wade. Since the leaked Supreme Court decision, the official decision of the Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization has been released as well as a local Ramsey County District Court decision overturning state restrictions to abortion.

Please join us for an engaging presentation on this challenging topic!
