  • Feb 12 Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy 2019 Symposium - Immigration, Adoption, and Our National Identity 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    In the 21st century, family creation often involves many more stakeholders than the nuclear family. Particularly in the area of International Child Adoption (ICA), family creation is a cross-border enterprise that implicates local, national, and global politics and conflicts. In his latest article, published in our Fall 2018 issue, Shani King traces the strengths and infirmities of past and present ICA frameworks and the different national goals embodied in each, and posits that ICA and immigration law should not be thought of as discrete issues, but indeed as two sides of the same coin, embodying the same national stressors and overarching goals. Dean Kerry Abrams and Prof. Kathryn Bradley will analyze King's article using their own expertise in immigration law, family creation law, and children's rights and invite discussion on the creation of a compassionate ICA framework that supports the rights of the child in an increasingly globalized world. Sponsored by the Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy Symposium 2019 - "Legislating Relationships: Individual Rights in Context." For more information, please contact Gabrielle Goodrow at gmg19@duke.edu.

  • Feb 12 A Talk by Dan Ariely: Quantifying Human Motivation for Better Outcome and Better Investments 5:30 PMFuqua School of Business Geneen Auditorium

    Despite our intentions, why do we so often fail to act in our own best interest? Why do we promise to skip the chocolate cake, only to find ourselves drooling our way into temptation when the dessert tray rolls around? Why do we overvalue things that we've worked to put together? What are the forces that influence our behavior? Dan Ariely, James B. Duke Professor of Psychology & Behavioral Economics at Duke University, is dedicated to answering these questions to help people live more sensible - if not rational - lives. His interests span a wide range of behaviors, and his sometimes unusual experiments are consistently interesting, amusing and informative, demonstrating profound ideas that fly in the face of common wisdom. Sponsored by the Finance Club at the Fuqua School of Business and the Global Financial Markets Center at Duke Law. For more information, please contact Courtney Smith at courtney.smith@law.duke.edu.

  • Feb 13 Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy 2019 Symposium - Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    From the very beginning of the epidemic, AIDS was linked to punishment. Calls to punish people living with HIV - mostly stigmatized minorities - began before doctors had even settled on a name for the disease. Punishing Disease looks at how HIV was transformed from sickness to badness under the criminal law and investigates the consequences of inflicting penalties on people living with disease. Trevor Hoppe's new book explores these questions and the further implications of the police power used against diseases like hepatitis and meningitis. Along with Allison Rice from Duke's HIV/AIDS Policy Clinic, who was instrumental in changing North Carolina's HIV criminalization laws, we will discuss the dangers of punitive and coercive responses to illness in our society and how to design a system that respects the individual while fighting the disease. Sponsored by the Duke Journal of Gender Law and Policy Symposium 2019 - "Legislating Relationships: Individual Rights in Context." For more information, please contact Gabrielle Goodrow at gmg19@duke.edu.

    Many of today's university students were too young to be impacted by the financial crisis directly; to them, the crisis is but a faint memory. Considering the stock market has recovered all of its losses and then some - and now ranks as the second longest bull market in history - these students may fairly wonder why the crisis is so important and worthy of study.

Therefore, we will be hosting a one-day conference on March 20th, 2019, that will invite scholars and prominent professionals to campus to reflect upon the impact of the crisis across multiple dimensions.

  • Mar 22 The Legal Frameworks of Work After the End of Employment 9:00 AMTBD

    This symposium will explore how the law of work does or should respond to the changing shape of work relationships in the contemporary economy. Three major phenomena will be explored. First: As the platform economy enables millions to provide services through an entity that disclaims any legal responsibility for the conditions of employment, how should law respond? Second: How should labor or employment law address the rapid spread of automation, which in the most futuristic sense threaten or promise to eliminate work? Third: global migrations of peoples and capital in a regulatory frame that renders migrant workers extremely vulnerable and aggregated capital apparently invincible, have generated historically unprecedented levels of inequality while political forces have galvanized nationalist backlash against some of the most vulnerable workers. What soft-law or hard law regulatory frameworks are developing to empower workers? Sponsored by Law & Contemporary Problems. For more information, please contact Will Sowers at wps9@duke.edu.
