Law Professor Jessie Hill speaks on panels and forums, argues before U.S. appeals court

School of Law Professor Jessie Hill’s work could be heard around the state and across the country in May and June.

In May, she stayed right here in Cleveland to be a panelist at a Cleveland–Marshall College of Law symposium, “Lawyers Without Rights.” Her panel was titled “The Rule of Law.”

Also in May, she appeared at a community forum for the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, giving a talk titled “Cocktails and Contraception.” The webcast can be viewed online.

On June 7, she argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in the case of Planned Parenthood v. DeWine, which involved a constitutional challenge to an Ohio law restricting how the abortion drug mifepristone (RU-486) can be prescribed.

Also in June, she presented a talk titled “Public Bodies, Private Reasons: Minors and the Right to Bodily Integrity” at the 35th Annual Health Law Professors Conference at Arizona State University School of Law.
