    Restrictions on reproductive health care have significant consequences for immigrants. In the wake of the rights-stripping Dobbs decision, immigrants without documentation are not able to travel in many parts of the country to access abortion due to immigration checkpoints. Although minors and adults in government custody have the right to obtain abortion access pursuant to federal policy, new challenges have emerged to ensure that policy is enforced. Furthermore, people in immigration custody have faced reproductive coercion, including forced sterilization, and shackling while pregnant, despite policy prohibiting such treatment. Come learn from Brigitte Amiri, the Deputy Director of the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, and Maura Finn, Senior Lead Attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center's Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative, about what can be done to ensure reproductive rights for immigrants. The discussion will be moderated by Professor Kate Evans. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by DIRP. For more information, please contact Ken Krmoyan at ken.krmoyan@duke.edu.

    The decision to pursue law firm/private sector employment for 2L summer and beyond is significant for GPI-focused 1Ls. Due to the scale of the OCI event, its focus on primarily "big law" employers, and increasingly earlier private sector recruiting, deciding whether to participate in and pursue private sector opportunities can be a decision flashpoint leading to concerns about closing doors. This session will help 1Ls determine how OCI may or may not fit into their career goals, as well as how to weigh competing values. PIPB career counselors will review the general job search timeline for private sector and GPI 2L jobs, and a panel of upper-level students will candidly share how they decided what was right for them. 1Ls who already know they will not pursue the private sector may still benefit from attending to hear from and connect with peers.

    Puerto Rico remains stuck in a quasi-colonial relationship with the U.S. that many islanders outspokenly condemn. For decades, Constitutional Law has been used to define and uphold this relationship. The Insular Cases, notably, made it so that only certain fundamental Constitutional rights are guaranteed to Puerto Rico while referring to the affected people as "alien races" and "savage tribes." This means that there are millions of American citizens without access to basic Constitutional rights. This panel of Puerto Rican Constitutional Law experts will delineate the history of constitutional law that carved out protections for colonialism; the effects that has had on the island; and the potential future pathways for Puerto Rico.

    What does it mean to count the harms caused by war and conflict? Drawing inspiration from the newly released report from the Lancet Commission on Peaceful Societies Through Health Equity and Gender Equality, this panel will explore the challenge of accurately quantifying the harms of conflict, as well as ongoing work to establish better legal frameworks to hold instigators of conflict accountable for the harms they cause. Panelists will discuss the use of sound epidemiological principles in estimating mortality and death in conflicts, which is central to fairness and the moral responsibility to ensure those lost are not forgotten. They will also explore new frameworks that better account for the cumulative harms of the reverberating effects of war on communities, including the lasting socioeconomic, educational, and environmental impacts of military action. In short this panel asks: How might better counting help make civilian harm count?

    The use of the legal system to dispossess Black families of their land is an ugly, painful and far too common feature of the American experience.

This is not just a historical pattern, however, but one that continues today. Join us for a screening of the new documentary, Silver Dollar Road. As described by the New York Times, the film is "an intimate documentary [that] focuses on one family's recent battle to keep their home in North Carolina.
