  • Los Angeles, CA

    Warren Buffet recently called medical costs "the tapeworm of American economic competitiveness." The United States continues to spend more of its GDP on healthcare than any other industrialized nation, yet neither Republican nor Democratic health reform proposals target the problem of rising costs. One problem is that policymakers focus on the purchasing of healthcare-regulating insurance markets or monitoring what patients receive-without scrutinizing the production of healthcare. Duke Law Professor Barak Richman will explore how the healthcare sector can transform into a more affordable and sustainable part of the American economy. Necessary elements will include reorienting the sector to digital technologies, abandoning costly infrastructures, reconceptualizing the role of traditional personnel and practices, and pursuing legal reforms that will emphasize promoting health, not purchasing healthcare. Special thanks to Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP for hosting. This event is coordinated by the Alumni and Development Office. For more information, please contact alumni_office@law.duke.edu.

    Join Duke Law Professor Lisa Kern Griffin for a conversation about the gap between truth and honesty in the criminal justice system, and how the courts may shed some light on the challenges of a "post-truth" public discourse.

This discussion will address why honesty and truth are not the same thing, and how conflating them can actually inhibit accuracy in criminal investigation and adjudication. In this engaging presentation, Professor Griffin will consider examples from police interrogations, plea bargaining, defendant testimony, cross examination, and forensic expertise. Coordinated by the Law School Alumni and Development Office. For more information, please contact alumni_office@law.duke.edu.

  • Miami, FL

    Sex segregation in sport has been the norm in the modern era, including under Title IX. Initially borne of combination of cultural etiquette, sex stereotype, and an understanding that women could not be physically competitive against men, today the policy is justified entirely by scientific and statistical evidence of this sex-linked performance gap: If we want sex equality in competitive sport we have to provide separate sex sport. The movement to include intersex and transgender athletes who identify as girls and women in girls' and women's events poses a challenge to the goal as well as to the sex conscious means designed to achieve it. Professor Doriane Coleman will describe this historical, scientific, and legal background before turning to the questions that are most prominent in the national conversation today: Can Title IX survive - legally and practically - the proposed redefinition of "sex" to include "gender identity"? What is the future of girls' and women's sport? This event is coordinated by the Alumni and Development Office. For more information, please contact alumni_office@law.duke.edu.
