Lawrence C. Levine wrote an op-ed, "A muted celebration of marriage equality," that appeared in the June 24, 2016 print edition of The Sacramento Bee in the California Forum section.

"A year ago Sunday, the U.S. Supreme Court determined that same-sex couples had the same constitutional right as other-sex couples to wed the person they love. I expected the first anniversary of that monumental decision would be a time of celebration and joy. But how can it be in light of the Orlando massacre?"

Professor Levine has authored several books and articles on the subject of Torts, and is a frequent panelist, lecturer, and speaker on legal issues involving sexual orientation. He has served on numerous national boards regarding the legal rights of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Professor Levine has provided expert opinion to media over the past year, including:
