    Impeccable Written Work Product for Professional Success: A Hands-On Workshop with Alumni 4:30 PMLaw School 3000

    All too often, lawyers' persuasiveness and perceived value are compromised by grand vocabularies and engrained assumptions about what constitutes a "sound" end product. Gain a significant advantage in the workplace this summer by learning to translate "legal writing" in to something your supervising attorney can absorb with ease and readily use to solve a specific problem. Through personal advice and guided analysis of two sample documents on the same legal issue - all in small "breakout" groups - alumni volunteers will equip students with key insights, and give attendees their first "review" before professional evaluations begin. Sponsored by the Career & Professional Development Center. Registration is required, and space is limited to the first forty (40) students to RSVP. To reserve your place in the workshop, please email Alan Dickinson at Dickinson@law.duke.edu, with your name and "Work Product Workshop" in the subject line.

    Can Louis Vuitton Dance with HiPhone? Rethinking the Idea of Social Justice in Intellectual Property Law - presented by Duke Law SJD candidate Haochen Sun from China 12:15 PMLaw School 4045

    Join Duke Law SJD Haochen Sun from China for a talk reconsidering the relationship between social justice and intellectual property through the lens of two conflicting cultural phenomena in China. The first cultural phenomenon, called "shanzhai", legitimizes the production of inexpensive and trendy products like the HiPhone. The second phenomenon is the rise of China as the largest luxury market in the world, unleashing an unprecedented increase in the consumer demand for luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton. The "shanzhai" phenomenon clashes with the IP protection that forms the foundation of the successful luxury market in China. By exploring the conflict between these two cultural phenomena, the talk will argue that intellectual property law should be redesigned to support the redistribution of three kinds of resources: benefits from technological development, cultural power, and sources of innovation. The focus on these three redistributive mandates would function to reorient the recent heated debate on social justice and intellectual property toward an inquiry about the redistribution of resources in intellectual property law. Lunch will be served. For more information, please contact Stefanie Kandzia at stefanie.kandzia@law.duke.edu.

He has a particular interest in how basic motivations and needs manifest as specific social and societal beliefs. These include: justice systems, the causes and consequences of stereotyping and system justification, religious belief, political ideology, and the attitudes people hold towards their organizations and institutions.

    Rethinking Reporter's Privilege: Anonymous Speech & Journalists' Sources 12:15 PMLaw School 3037

    The Program in Public Law presents Professor RonNell Andersen Jones (J. Reuben Clark Law School, Brigham Young University). Forty years ago, in Branzburg v. Hayes, the Supreme Court made its first and only inquiry into the constitutional protection of the relationship between a reporter and a confidential source, resulting in a reporter-focused "privilege" now widely regarded to be doctrinally questionable and deeply inconsistent in application. Jones argues that the Court should abandon its reporter-based approach to confidential-source cases and suggests that analyzing these cases based on the anonymous speech rights of sources rather than on the information-flow or news gathering rights of the reporters will more fully acknowledge the scope of First Amendment interests at stake and eliminate the need to define who is a "reporter" for purposes of the privilege--a task that has become increasingly complicated as technological changes alter the primary mechanisms for gathering and disseminating news.

    "Hot Coffee" Viewing 7:00 PMLaw School 3041

    One of the most famous cases in US history is that of Stella Liebeck suing McDonald's for injuries she sustained when she spilled a cup of coffee purchased from a drive-through window at a McDonald¿s in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The jury's award of $2.7 million in punitive damages created a public outcry that helped support major tort reform efforts throughout the country. But was this award really so outrageous? The documentary Hot Coffee focuses on this case and other examples where tort reform has impacted the American litigation process. Duke Law is pleased to have Executive Producer Susan Saladoff present to take questions after the showing of the documentary. For more information, contact Jean Jentilet at jean.jentilet@law.duke.edu.
