    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.

    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.

    The interface between business and government is growing in importance as an increasing number legislative and regulatory proposals seek to affect the contours of markets, innovation, and competition. One of the main mechanisms that firms, unions, and other interest groups use to influence public policy is lobbying. This conference examines recent advances in research to understand how political influence is exerted by these groups, the mechanisms by which it creates and alters public policy, and how these public policy outcomes affect markets. This will precede a sister conference on related topics in lobbying to be held at Princeton University in early May 2019. Sponsored by the Center for Institutional & Organizational Performance and The Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship Initiative. This is a closed event.

    The DJCLPP will be holding the second in its series of conversations with the authors we are publishing this issue. This lecture will be by Professor Frédéric Sourgens from Washburn University School of Law. He will be discussing his article entitled States of Resistance, where he argues that state governments, rather than only the federal government, should (and constitutionally can) participate in global governance networks. In doing so, states will both counterbalance the Executive's power over foreign affairs and, even more importantly, compel federal policymakers and administrators to enter into governance networks in competition with the states, thereby enriching the transnational legal process. We invite students and faculty to engage with Professor Sourgens on both the substance of his piece as well as his writing process.

    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.

    ¿ The decision to participate in OCI Segment I at the end of July is significant for GPI-focused 1Ls.

For 1Ls, this session will help you determine how OCI Segment I may or may not fit into your career goals, as well as how to weigh competing values to figure out those goals in the first place.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Achieving machine learning's significant potential to promote innovative, trustworthy outcomes will require that relevant legal levers, including intellectual property, liability, privacy, and agency-specific regulation, be calibrated appropriately. This session will provide an overview of key legal regimes and proposals for calibration. For example, in high-risk areas like health, how much disclosure regarding how a model was trained do regulatory agencies like the FDA or adopters in the marketplace need in order to trust the model's outputs? How do we balance the benefits of transparent data with risks to privacy and trade secrecy needs? Who should bear financial responsibility if and when a model makes mistakes?

    This session is part of the Duke + Data Science (+DS) program in-person learning experiences (IPLEs). To learn more, please visit https://plus.datascience.duke.edu/
