The University of Connecticut’s School of Law will host a symposium on March 24 around the question: Are parental rights always in the best interest of children?
“This symposium will explore the complex issues surrounding the role of parental rights in advancing progressive goals while at the same time examine (sic) how parental rights are being used to undermine racial, gender, and LGBTQ equality,” a flier for the event states.
“These conflicts have come to a head recently in the areas of education, gender-affirming care, and family regulation,” it says. “The discussion will also include how children’s interests can and should be represented, and whether that is best accomplished through their parents.”
According to the flier, attorneys who pay $30 to attend can receive Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit for attending the symposium.
