    Individuals and Legal Institutions in the Medieval Mediterranean All DayPerkins Library 217

    While there is a vast literature on medieval Jewish and Islamic law, the histories of medieval Jewish and Muslim legal institutions received substantially less attention. A relative dearth of documentary sources and a privileged position given to prescriptive texts have led to a top-down approach that views courts predominantly from the perspective of the central political power and/or the legal tradition. This situation contrasts with the study of courts and the legal arena in Christian Europe where there has been a long tradition of studying legal institutions "from below," whether through the lens of dispute settlement, microhistory, or legal anthropology. This conference will attempt to bridge the gap between the study of legal culture and practice in medieval Europe and the Islamic world by bring together scholars of medieval Christian, Muslim, Jewish and secular legal institutions to think comparatively about the study of individuals and legal institutions "from below." In order to supply a comparative perspective, we will be joined by scholars who have tackled such questions in adjacent fields, from Late Antiquity to the Ottoman Empire. The talks will explore how individuals accessed legal institutions and maneuvered in the legal arena, how legal institutions catered to and were affected by litigants' participation, and to what extent viewing litigants as consumers is a fruitful model in Europe and across the Mediterranean.

    Copyright and the Public Interest: A Tale of Two Digital Library Litigations 12:30 PMLaw School 3037

    This talk will examine the best ways to promote the public interest through copyright law by comparing the recent litigations over the Google Library Project in the United States and China. The U.S. courts ruled that the Google Library Project was fair use. By contrast, the Chinese courts ruled against Google, holding that its Library Project did not constitute fair use. In the talk, Professor Sun will consider why the U.S. and Chinese courts have made these conflicting judicial opinions. He will further use this comparative study to show that the construction of both legal and cultural infrastructures is essential for promoting the public interest in copyright law. This event will cover topics in both comparative and international intellectual property law. Sponsored by the International Law Society.

    Howard Dudley Embraces His Freedom: Wrongfully Convicted Man Freed After 23 Years in Prison 12:30 PMLaw School 3041

    Join the Wrongful Convictions Clinic and Innocence Project in celebrating the hard earned freedom of Howard Dudley, a client of the Duke Wrongful Conviction's Clinic.

Professors from the Wrongful Convictions Clinic, as well as clinic students, will walk through what led to Howard's conviction and how he eventually achieved his freedom. There will also be a discussion of the reintegration process, and what the road ahead for Howard holds. Read more here: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/crime/article63564927.html#storyl....
