Panel to discuss Roe v. Wade ruling

Published July 1, 2022

The School of Law will hold a virtual panel discussion from noon to 1:30 p.m. July 6 on the Supreme Court’s recent decision overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade decision.

“Deconstructing Dobbs: The Meaning and Implications of Overturning Roe v. Wade” is free and open to all members of the UB community, as well as members of the Western New York legal community.

“The University at Buffalo School of Law is resolute in our mission of promoting justice,” says Dean Aviva Abramovsky.

“As the State of New York’s law school, we support Gov. Kathy Hochul in her commitment to protecting access to safe reproductive health care as a fundamental human right. And we remain dedicated to preparing future lawyers and leaders who will fight to defend our inalienable rights and uphold justice for all.” 

The panel discussion features several law professors with a breadth of expertise who will examine the ruling’s immediate implications — legal and practical — for abortion access and women’s health, as well as the potential long-term impact on the rights to contraception, sexual liberty and same-sex marriage.

Abramovsky will give opening remarks.
