Sexual Identity Law in Context: Cases and Materials
This book puts the law concerning lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people into a social context. The result is that students better understand the law by understanding the social issues underlying the legalities. Material providing background discussion (law review articles, journal articles from other disciplines, journalism, history, science, philosophy, traditional prose, and comparative law materials) supplements cases that involve all major aspects of sexual identity law. The book provides a detailed course designed for an upper-level law school seminar, but introductory explanation provided for major legal concepts makes it suitable for beginning students as well.
