In the 2009 legislative session, Nevada’s legislature enacted the new Domestic Partnership Act (Senate Bill 283) thereby making Nevada the 17th state to recognize the relationships of gay and lesbian couples under state law. This presentation will provide an overview of the new legal status, including the scope and limitations of the new law. The overview will be followed by a discussion of how domestic partnership differs from “marriage” under Nevada’s constitutional amendment, whether opposite-sex couples in Nevada may take advantage of the new legal status, what effect, if any, the Act will have on civil marriage, and more.
This event will be held in room 102 at the William S. Boyd School of Law.
