Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia; Altitude Express, Inc. v. Zarda; and R.G. & G.R. Harris Funeral Homes, Inc. v. E.E.O.C.

This was an excellent presentation. LGBT rights are extremely important and the cases were very thoroughly and thoughtfully discussed.

Michele J.

Unfortunately, there was too much material to cover in an hour, but it was very well presented and the materials set out the cases and arguments and other points the presenter was going t raise.

Michael H.

I only wish it were longer to get into the "religious freedom" discussion in greater depth. I hope you will re-offer as a longer course with great attention to these, and perhaps you can talk more about the way the current makeup of the Supreme Court has viewed these matters. Thank you!

Michael D.

would have liked a better coverage of the Harris Funeral case
