  • Virtual

    The emerging communitarian norm "I wear a mask for you and you wear a mask for me" will soon be "I vaccinate for you and you vaccinate for me." If we adhere to both, lives will be saved, kids will be back in school, and our economic prospects will improve. If a lot of us don't, these objectives will be harder to achieve. Given this and the fact that pre-pandemic Americans were increasingly claiming individual exemptions from vaccination requirements with documented implications for the public health, the arrival of the Covid vaccine is certain to be accompanied by a vigorous national debate about their merits. In this talk, Professor Doriane Coleman will summarize the current state of vaccination law and present two arguments focused on religious exemptions in particular.

    Traditionally conceived as a social service adjunct to public systems to address the needs of victims, restorative justice has increasingly been codified into state law and operationalized into multiple stages of formal legal processes, from pre-charge diversion to post-sentencing. In this talk, Professor Thalia González (Occidental, Georgetown Law) will argue the legal internalization of restorative justice has heightened the need for judges, attorneys, and advocates to not only understand it theoretically, but also pragmatically, as they must now make decisions regarding the use of and access to restorative justice at different stages of legal processes. Drawing on an original 50-state dataset of state statutes, court rules and regulations, she will discuss key empirical findings, implications, trends, and limitations of restorative justice laws in juvenile and criminal justice systems. She will also highlight critical ethical and constitutional considerations. Sponsored by the Criminal Law Society. For more information, please contact Ryan Kuchinski at ryan.kuchinski@duke.edu.

    In this workshop, Fuqua career coach and The 2-Hour Job Search author Steve Dalton offers an exact process - rather than a series of tips - for effectively turning strangers into advocates, leading to more internal referrals and more job interviews. This session proposes an efficient alternative to hopelessly applying to online job postings by turning the difficult topic of networking into something finite and replicable. Dalton draws upon the latest science ranging from behavioral economics to operations theory to social psychology to split networking into its three component parts: prioritization, outreach, and recruiting advocacy. Each will be discussed in turn to help job seekers harness free and simple technology to get the right job faster.
