    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 Spring 2019 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.

  • 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, and Robert Suttle from the Sero Project, 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.

  • Mar 22 The Legal Frameworks of Work After the End of Employment 9:00 AMLaw School 3041

    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.

  • Apr 30 Duke Law Live! Honest Mistakes, True Lies, and False Precision in the Criminal Justice Process 6:00 PMWashington D.C.

    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. Focusing on "lying" is a natural response to uncertainty but too narrow of a concern. 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. This event is coordinated by the Alumni and Development Office. For more information, please contact alumni_office@law.duke.edu.

  • May 6 OCI Prep: Navigating Firm Recruiting as a GPI-focused Student 11:00 AMLaw School 4047

    This session is for students who will pursue firm employers for 2L summer, including through OCI Segment I at the end of July, but who were previously interested in GPI work and/or have plans to transition to public interest work after a few years of practice. Join Ashley Walker (a career counselor who works primarily with private sector students) and Bethan Eynon (a career counselor who works primarily with GPI students) as we work through tailoring your GPI narrative for interviews with private law firms. A panel of upper-level students working at firms will share how they explained why they are interested in private practice, how they modified their narratives for firm interviews, how they framed their public interest experiences and pro bono for firm interviewers, and how they navigated questions about interest in pro bono work and long-term career goals. Then, practice adjusting your own narrative and receive feedback. Sponsored by the Career and Professional Development Center. Contact Bethan Eynon (bethan.eynon@law.duke.edu) with questions. Pizza will be served after this session and prior to the subsequent "OCI Prep: Logistics and Resource Overview" session at 12:30 pm.
