On December 1, the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. The question presented will require the Court to determine whether to reaffirm or overrule, in whole or in part, its decisions in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which recognize a constitutional right to pre-viability abortion. This Fall’s HLS Rappaport Forum will explore this vital question.

The Harvard Law School Rappaport Forum is designed to promote and model full, vigorous, and civil discourse on critical and complicated issues facing our community, our nation, and our world.
