  • Feb 5 International Human Rights in the Supeme Court: Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum 12:15 PMLaw School 3037

    Earlier this term, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, which presents the issue of whether, under the Alien Tort Statute (ATS), a business corporation operating in another country may be sued in a U.S. court for allegedly committing, or helping others to commit, human rights violations overseas. As human rights victims have increasingly turned to the ATS to seek redress for abuses suffered abroad, the outcome in Kiobel could limit or entirely foreclose this meaningful avenue for justice. Join the Human Rights Law Society for an exciting discussion about this historic case featuring Professors Laurence Helfer and Curtis Bradley. For more information, please contact Lilia Lopez at lilia.lopez@duke.edu.

  • Feb 8 Interdisciplinary Perspectives on LGBT Human Rights Advocacy 8:45 AMWest Duke 101

    This day-long conference is co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Center for International and Comparative Law at Duke Law School, Women's and Sexuality Studies, and the Center for LGBT Life. Recent efforts to combat violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity have made remarkable progress internationally. But these efforts have also been met with resistance and backlashes in some countries. The rapid changes in the legal, political, social and cultural landscapes for LGBT individuals raise fundamental questions about the strategies that activists, lawyers and NGOs deploy to promote LGBT equality. The symposium will bring together a small group of leading scholars, activists and attorneys whose work focuses on LGBT issues in different parts of the world to share insights and experiences across the disciplinary and academic-practitioner divides.

    J. David Breemer, Principal Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, joins the Federalist Society for a discussion of one of the hottest topics in North Carolina property law. Professor Salzman will provide a commentary. To what extent must private property ownership, use and development in coastal areas give way to public beach access rights as erosion moves the beach inland? In North Carolina, the Town of Nags Head claims that, when erosion moves the vegetation line landward of privately owned "dry beach" parcels, those lots instantly become open to public use and access under a "public trust doctrine" theory, and any pre-existing homes on the area are subject to removal as nuisances for inhibiting public beach access. No compensation is offered to the owners. No hearing is provided by the Town before they determine private dry beach areas are now public and homes on the area, illegal. Two cases currently being litigated by Mr. Breemer are pending in the 4th Circuit. For more information contact pla4@duke.edu.

  • Apr 19 Technology-Assisted Review Conference 8:00 AMOff-campus

    Washington Plaza Hotel, Washington DC - The conference critically examines the usefulness and effectiveness of "technology-assisted" review as a tool whose proponents assert will substantially reduce ediscovery costs. "Technology-assisted" review is also referred to sometimes as "predictive-coding" review or "computer-assisted" review. Its utility was challenged and upheld in Da Silva Moore (2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23350 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 24, 2012)), a decision rendered by Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck and confirmed by U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter (11 Civ. 1279 (ALC)(AJP)). Under the new technology, senior lawyers review a few thousand documents for relevancy and privilege, which provides information for artificial intelligence to do the same for the remainder of the electronically stored information in an iterative process, potentially substantially reducing the costs of manual review.

  • Sep 12 Dress, Law and Naked Truth 12:15 PMLaw School 3043

    Why are civil authorities in so-called liberal democracies affronted by public nudity and the Islamic full-face "veil"? Why are law and civil order so closely associated with robes, gowns, suits, wigs and uniforms? Why is law so concerned with the "evident" and the need for justice to be "seen" to be done? Why do we dress and obey dress codes at all? In this, the first ever study devoted to the many deep cultural connections between dress and law, the author addresses these questions and more. His responses flow from the radical thesis that "law is dress and dress is law". Engaging with sources from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Shakespeare, Carlyle, Dickens and Damien Hirst, Professor Watt draws a revealing history of dress and civil order and offers challenging conclusions about the nature of truth and the potential for individuals to fit within the forms of civil life. The lecture will mark the recent publication of Gary Watt's Dress, Law and Naked Truth: A Cultural Study of Fashion and Form (London, Bloomsbury Academic, 2013). For more information, please contact Dian Shah at dda4@duke.edu or Stefanie Kandzia at stefanie.kandzia@law.duke.edu.
