    American Jewish Institutions and Organizational Innovation 12:00 PMWest Duke 101

    Using Theory to Inform Practice, Using Success to Inform PractitionersIn recent decades, research on organizational innovation has usefully helped business leaders guide their firms through changing market conditions. These lessons have helped companies survive the introduction of new technologies, navigate changing market environments, and rejuvenate old institutions into new markets. While consultants to nonprofits have encouraged community and philanthropic organizations to adopt these same lessons, very few have. This is especially true in the Jewish world, which remains dominated by institutions that have been criticized for pursuing costly strategies and out-of-date priorities. Nonetheless, there are some Jewish leaders and organizations that have injected dynamism into American Jewish life that follows the template of organizational innovation.This conference is designed to highlight the achievements of some of these organizations, understand their experiences within a common theoretical understanding of institutional renewal, and synthesize lessons for other Jewish organizations and communities who seek to rejuvenate Jewish life through creative organizations and organizational strategies.

    Dysfunction in DC: Myth and Reality 12:15 PMLaw School 3041

    The federal government is dysfunctional. "Standing on principle" is richly rewarded, while "compromise" has become a dirty word.

This panel, featuring former United States Senator Ted Kaufmann, and Professors Jeffrey Peck and Christopher Schroeder, will dispel the myths and shed light on the realities of governing in the current social, political and economic climate.

    Can Good Lawyers Finish First? - Civility and Success in Big Law 12:15 PMLaw School 3043

    Having spent almost a decade at Jones Day, DLA Piper, and King & Spaulding, since graduating from Duke Law in 2002, David Grenardo (currently an associate professor at St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas) knows a thing or two about what it takes to succeed in Big Law.

Mr. Grenardo's thesis is that by treating others with dignity and courtesy, lawyers achieve the greatest benefits overall for themselves, their clients, and the legal system as a whole. Please join us for an entertaining and thought-provoking look at civility and success in the legal profession today.

    CANCELED: DELPF Spring Symposium: Environmental Justice 9:00 AMLaw School 3041

    DELPF plans to examine the development of American environmental justice law and policy in the twenty years since President Bill Clinton issued Executive Order 12,898, which mandated that "each Federal agency shall make achieving environmental justice part of its mission." This symposium will explore domestic environmental justice issues as well as the idea of leakage of environmental harms from the United States to developing countries. That is, that the negative environmental externalities of the United States economy - those that inspired the American environmental justice movement - have shifted overseas. Examples of environmental leakage include the export of American electronic waste ("e-waste"), the United States' non-ratification of the Basel Convention, and climate justice realities arising from American carbon dioxide emissions.

    Annual Brainerd Currie Memorial Lecture: "Ballot Bedlam," with Prof. Samuel Issacharoff 12:15 PMLaw School 3041

    North Carolina's ongoing battles over ballot access are a window into the current malaise that plagues America's electoral system. Amid the debates about vote fraud and vote suppression, about race and politics, about abuse and integrity, lie some deeper questions about how the U.S. has structured its democracy. The Supreme Court decisions on Alabama's Shelby County and on Arizona's voter registration provide some interesting new clues to the complicated interrelation between law, the Constitution, race and politics. Samuel Issacharoff, the Reiss Professor of Constitutional Law at New York University School of Law, will address the difficult intersection of these fraught areas of American law and politics when he delivers Duke Law's annual Currie Lecture. His wide-ranging research deals with issues in civil procedure, law and economics, constitutional law (particularly with regard to voting rights and electoral systems), and employment law.For more information, contact Sandie MacLachlan at sandra.maclachlan@law.duke.edu.

    44th Annual DLJ Administrative Law Symposium: Taking Administrative Law to Tax 9:00 AMLaw School 3041

    The foundations of settled law are shifting as courts begin to apply administrative law doctrines to the rather insular world of tax administration. These developments present an ideal opportunity to reflect on the general validity and utility of both general administrative law principles and statutory commands of the APA. Is tax administration somehow fundamentally different from administration in other areas? Does what happens in tax call into question any important assumptions or practices in general administrative law? Are there reforms that might usefully be made, either in general administrative law rules or in tax administration? These are the questions for reflection as the Symposium takes administrative law to tax. For more information, please contact Devon Damiano at devon.damiano@lawnet.duke.edu.

    The Bubble Next Time: How Booming Markets Will Cause Financial Reforms to Fail Just When You Need them the Most - Prof. Erik Gerding 12:15 PMLaw School 3037

    Bubbles undermine financial laws at the moment when they are most needed. Market booms not only encourage policymakers to relax financial rules, but also to stimulate markets through changes in the content, enforcement, and interpretation of legal rules. And dynamics of a bubble undermine the incentives of market participants to obey the law. In his new book, Law, Bubbles, and Financial Regulation (Routledge, 2014), Prof. Gerding examines the ways in which market booms and legal change interact to profoundly destabilize regulation and offers proposals for designing resilient and adaptive regulatory institutions on which sustainable financial reform depends. Presented by the Global Financial Markets Center. A light lunch will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please contact Jean Jentilet at jean.jentilet@law.duke.edu.

Gender differences in laws affect both developing and developed economies, and women in all regions.

    Internet Regulation in 2020 8:30 AMSee description

    Recent debates about Internet regulation in the U.S. have focused on the FCC's 2010 Open Internet order and its May 2014 NPRM, but longer-term questions about the regulation of broadband networks loom. What can and should the Internet be in 2020? What is the appropriate regulatory approach to take in the next few years, and how should it be implemented? What will all this mean for innovators, policymakers, and users? Join Duke Law School's Center for Innovation Policy on Friday, October 17, at the Keck Center in Washington, D.C., for this symposium, bringing together a small group of leading authorities for a discussion of these questions. Vint Cerf and Tim Berners-Lee will begin the program, which will also include Paul de Sa, Sharon Gillett, Bill Lehr, Ruth Milkman, Jon Nuechterlein, Jon Sallet, Henning Schulzrinne, Howard Shelanski, Jim Speta, and Daniel Weitzner.
