Join Legal Studies on Friday, Feb. 9th for a panel discussion on the Supreme Court case Masterpiece Cakeshop V. Colorado.

Can a bakery refuse to bake a custom cake for a same-sex wedding? The Supreme Court is currently considering a case which raises this question and will set the boundaries of free speech and LGBT rights. Panelists will provide background on the legal issues surrounding the case and the possible outcomes of the Court’s decision.
