Matt Smith will present "The Principle of Complementarity in the Origins of Federal Civil Rights Enforcement, 1866-1871." He argues that America's experiment with the principle of complementarity during Reconstruction and its contemporary emergence in modern international law prove its usefulness in permitting external judicial intervention on behalf of externally guaranteed norms without disrupting local sovereigns' claims to adjudicatory authority more than necessary to ensure enforcement of these norms. Robert McGuire will present "Salarymen, Stroke, and Suicide: Empirical Support for Shavell's Insights on the Incentives to Prevent Accidents." He argues that the near-strict employer liability for karoshi ("death by overwork") established by the Japanese Supreme Court in Dentsu has created no new incentives for an overworked employee to care for his health. Lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Andrei Mamolea at email@example.com.
