Lawson Associate Professor of Law, and Allison Connelly, the Director of the Legal Clinic and James and Mary Lassiter Professor of Law, were recently quoted and cited as sources in hundreds of national media outlets regarding the Rowan County (Kentucky) Clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses.
