Medina speaks to Tulane law students about 'De-Emphasizing Marriage'

October 5, 2012

M. Isabel Medina, J.D., the Ferris Family Distinguished Professor of Law at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, spoke to students at Tulane Law School in September.

Medina’s talk, "De-Emphasizing Marriage? Comments on Erez Aloni's proposal to provide a registered contractual relationship alternative to civil marriage," was by invitation of the Tulane Law Review.

Aloni proposes that states set up a registration scheme to allow any kind of couple to register their relationship by filing a signed form, accompanied with a contract. As “registered partners,” couples would get most of the rights and benefits of married couples. Registered contractual relationships are accompanied by no solemnization process, no ceremonial or religious process.
