    This panel explores intersections between family law and constitutional law. Topics to be covered include: comparative constitutional approaches to family reunification and the right to family life; the intersection of parentage law with constitutional parental rights; the historical and constitutional regulation of sex equality, feminism, and nonmarital families; abortion jurisprudence and family roles; and the preservation of the monoracial family and constitutional limits on family formation contracts.
