In addition to joining the committee for North Dakotans Against Measure 1, Morrison recently participated as a panelist at the North Dakota Women's Network Workshop in Fargo. The panel, entitled Personhood 101, covered the history of personhood legislation and the potential impact of personhood legislation on the State of North Dakota. Professor Morrision provided a legal analysis of the amendment's potential effects.
