John Fund, the Court upheld the Fraud On The Market presumption of reliance for securities fraud cases but chose to allow defendants to rebut the presumption at the class certification stage of a class action proceeding.

The Duke Journal of Constitutional Law & Public Policy's 2015 symposium will discuss the coherence of fraud on the market as a body of law, the practical implications of the Court's decision in Halliburton, and alternative enforcement mechanisms for securities fraud.

    Prospects for Japanese Constitutional Change 5:30 PMLaw School 3041

    Much recent news about Japan has been about its economy and so-called Abenomics. However, the country's prime minister, Shinzo Abe has made no secret of his desire to amend Japan's constitution. Having won several successive elections, his Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and coalition partner may now be in a position to do so. While much of the discussion about Japanese constitutional amendment focuses on the famous "Renunciation of War clause," the amendment formally proposed by the LDP in 2012 suggests their agenda is much more extensive, idealogically-driven and potentially influential in areas of Japanese life having nothing to do with national security. Professor Carl Goodman, Adjunct Professor, Japanese Law at Georgetown University Law Center and Doshisha Law School's Professor Colin P.A. Jones will discuss some of the implications of the LDP proposals and the prospects for constitutional reform in Japan. Sponsored by Carolina Asia Center, Asian/Pacific Studies Institute and Duke East Asian Nexus. For more information please contact Sarah Holsapple at sarah.holsapple@law.duke.edu.

    This is a private event for the Duke Law community. Please join us for an evening with Prince Moulay Hicham Ben Abdallah for an engaging dialogue on the Arab World, which will encompass a discussion on the following: New regional conflict defines the Middle East in the wake of the Arab Spring. This new climate of violence reflects not so much ancient hatreds but the domestic imperatives of authoritarian regimes, as they struggle to deflect attention from structural problems in their society such as economic stagnation, youth resistance, and public demands for political voice. They have fueled new sectarian and geopolitical competition that has divided the region into warring camps, and amplified the violence and repression seen in countries like Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and Egypt. Yet for most regimes, such a costly strategy of survival is not sustainable in the long term. The path forward entails encouraging openness, reforms, and innovation, which will require sustained efforts from all sectors of society. Sponsored by SOLIMENA, ILS and HRLS.

    A Tale of Two Detainees: Defending the Accused and the U.S. Constitution in the Military Commissions of Guantanamo 12:30 PMLaw School 3037

    Renowned advocate and scholar Lt Col David Frakt, an Air Force JAG officer and highly regarded expert on military commissions, will speak about his representation of detainees Mohammed Jawad and Ali Hamza al Bahlul.

    Virtual Faculty Workshop with the Shanghai University of International Business and Economics (SUIBE) School of Law 7:30 PMLaw School 4000

    Professor Steven Schwarcz will lead a joint workshop with SUIBE School of Law faculty that will discuss how corporate governance law should take into account a duty to the public to help protect against systemic risk. What is excessive risk-taking? What would a public governance duty add to other ways of protecting against systemic risk (e.g., capital and other firm-specific financial requirements, aligning managerial and investor interests [e.g., through compensation and/or contingent capital], etc.)? In that context, how would those other ways of protecting against systemic risk align the firm's interests with the public interest, and would a public governance duty help to overcome a regulatory time lag? Assuming a public governance duty can be efficient to help protect against systemic risk, how should it be implemented? Should managers be protected by a business judgment rule? Would a public governance duty more broadly represent a "stakeholder model" of corporate governance? For faculty only. Sponsored by Professor Schwarcz.

    Connecting Climate: Contributions, Coalitions and Carbon Markets 8:30 AMLaw School 4055

    The climate regime has become complex. Several regional carbon markets have been started. Multiple international agreements and organizations now address greenhouse gas emissions. The current plans for the post-2020 regime call on each country to propose its own "intended nationally determined contribution" to the global effort. The workshop will discuss and debate how the new international regime should be designed to embrace and connect these diverse policies and measures. We will explore what we can learn about the design of the future international regime from the unfolding arrangements in regional efforts, how regional carbon markets can best be linked around the world, and how an international regime can best mobilize, and measure, efforts by countries or clubs/coalitions. Sponsored by Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, the Duke University Energy Initiative, and the Duke University School of Law.

    The Other Nixon Scandal: Criminalizing Politics 12:30 PMLaw School 3043

    Geoff Shepard joined Richard Nixon's White House staff right out of Harvard Law School, later becoming the youngest lawyer on his Watergate defense team. They lost big time: Nixon's election mandate was wiped out, he resigned in disgrace, and many of his staff were imprisoned. Forty years later, Shepard is back with newly uncovered evidence of flagrant due process violations - and documents describing how judges and prosecutors conspired to achieve their political goals. His book, The Real Watergate Scandal, documents a shocking story of secret meetings, secret memos, and secret collusion by political opponents. Their Watergate prosecutions launched the criminalization of politics that still haunts politicians today - and taught other current political leaders survival lessons they still employ. Get in on the story as it unfolds. Professor Sara Beale and Geoff Shepard will discuss. Panda Express will be served. Sponsored by the Federalist Society.

    Private Violence: How do we begin to build a future without domestic violence using the law? 5:30 PMLaw School 4047

    Private Violence is a short documentary film and audience engagement campaign that explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the US, at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask: "why doesn't she just leave?" Private Violence shatters the brutality of this logic. Through the eyes of two survivors we bear witness to the complicated and complex realities of intimate partner violence. Join Kit Gruelle - the advocate featured in Private Violence, Fran Bumgarner - a family survivor of domestic violence, Howard Kallem - Director of the Office for Institutional Equity and Title IX Coordinator, and a Durham DA. Dinner will be provided. Sponsored by the Coalition Against Gendered Violence, Law Students for Reproductive Justice, and Women's Center.

    Robert R. Wilson Lecture: "Under the Shield of the Law of Nations": Black Women and Children Refugees and the Rights of Humanity 12:30 PMLaw School 3041

    During the Civil War the U.S. confronted a growing population of refugees and a humanitarian crisis. The refugees of the Civil War were predominantly slaves - and increasingly women and children - who fled slavery hoping to get to Union military lines in the South. By the end of the Civil War, tens of thousands had passed through, and many died in, refugee camps. In today's language, they constituted an internally displaced population and simultaneously, a stateless people. Under the rules of war promulgated by the federal government in 1863 - "Instructions for the Government of Aries of the United States in the Field, General Order No 100" - they were not only "made free by the law of war" but came "under the shield of the law of nations." In her lecture, Thavolia Glymph, the John Hope Franklin Visiting Professor of American Legal History, looks at the forces that led to the establishment of refugee camps during the Civil War and places the history of black refugees within the broader scholarship on refugees, human rights, and the law of war. The lecture is part of Duke University's year-long centenary tribute to Franklin, who was the James B. Duke Professor Emeritus of History and taught Constitutional History at the Law School for seven years. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean.
