The 2016 Iris Marion Young Distinguished Faculty Lecture presents Martha Nussbaum, Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics, University of Chicago Law School.

India decriminalized sodomy in 2009 in a resonant Delhi High Court case known as Naz Foundation, which held the laws to be similar to caste discrimination based on bodily disgust. In 2013, however, the Supreme Court reinstated the sodomy laws. My lecture first sets out the underlying theory of disgust and stigma that I have used previously to analyze U. S. constitutional cases, and which is similar to the theory used in Naz Foundation. I then examine the social background for both the progressive Naz Foundation opinion and the resistance to it. Finally, I look closely at the legal reasoning in the two cases.

At some point in almost every lawyer’s career, he or she gives some thought to the idea of moving in-house.  As a law student, you may already be considering this move or career path.  There are a number of reasons that you may be attracted to a career in-house: you may have heard about the dreaded billable hour, the requirements of business development obligations, or you may simply want the opportunity to have a more predictable schedule.  In practice, it can be difficult to prepare to move in-house until you actually decide that you want to make the move.  This program will help you to start thinking, as a law student, about what you can do to help position yourself whether you are interested in pursuing an in-house position later or in trying to find an in-house option right out of law school.

Andrew Pfau, '02, Counsel at William Blair & Company, LLC; Angie Steele,'02, Senior Counsel at McDonald's Corporation; Sarah Steele, '02, Assistant General Counsel at Sears Holding Corporation; and Benson Dastrup, '03, General Counsel at Uptake have all made the transition from private practice to in-house.  They will provide helpful tips for preparing to move in-house and the key factors for success once you finally take the leap of faith and land your in-house role.

In today’s fast-paced world, most of us are “connected" 24/7 and operate in a state of continual partial attention that negatively impacts our productivity, performance, and well-being.  Years of research has proven that multi-tasking and always being “on" reduces our intellect and the quality of our decisions.  In fact, a University of London study found that constant emailing and texting reduces IQ by an average of ten points!  In this Keystone Program, Robin Ross, Executive Director of the Doctoroff Business Leadership Program and a certified executive and leadership coach, will share some surprising insights about the brain and provide you with some practical tips on how to more effectively manage distractions and improve your focus, memory, and well-being.

DEFENDERS, DVP, & LSRJ present "Defense of Battered Spouses Who Kill Their Batterers" with Andrea Lyon, Dean of Valparaiso Law and Death Penalty Defense Attorney. Please join us on February 16th in Room III for an interesting talk provided to us by a zealous and lifelong advocate for indigent criminal defendants. Professor Alison Siegler will be introducing Dean Lyon. Lunch will be Provided.

Andrea D. Lyon was appointed as the 12th - and first female - Dean of Valparaiso University Law School in June of 2014, leading one of the oldest American Bar Association-accredited law schools in the United States. Prior to joining Valparaiso Law, Andrea served as a clinical professor of law, Associate Dean of Clinical Programs, and Director of the Center for Justice in Capital Cases at DePaul University College of Law. Lyon received her undergraduate degree from Rutgers University and her law degree from Antioch School of Law.

After graduating from law school, Andrea worked for the Cook County Public Defenders' Office in the felony trial division, post-conviction/habeas corpus unit, and the preliminary hearing/first municipal unit and the appeals division. She also was chief of the Homicide Task Force, a 22-lawyer unit representing persons accused of homicides.

 She has tried over 130 homicide cases, both while in the Public Defender's Office and after her tenure with the Public Defender’s Office. She has defended more than 30 potential capital cases at the trial level and has taken 19 cases through penalty phase -- and won all 19 cases.

 In 1990, she founded the Illinois Capital Resource Center and served as its director until joining the University of Michigan Law School faculty as an assistant clinical professor in 1995. A winner of the prestigious National Legal Aid and Defender Association's Reginald Heber Smith Award for best advocate for the poor in the country, she is a nationally recognized expert in the field of death penalty defense and a passionate advocate for criminal justice system reform in the United States.

Andrea is the author of “Angel of Death Row: My Life as a Death Penalty Defense Lawyer,” and her latest book, the just released“The Death Penalty. What’s Keeping it Alive.”

Join Dean Gardner and Professor Pacold for a discussion of the book "The Road to Character" by David Brooks, a University of Chicago alum, New York Times Op-Ed Columnist, and author of "The Social Animal."  

"The Road to Character" is a #1 New York Times Bestseller that focuses on the deeper values that should inform our lives. Responding to what Mr. Brooks calls the culture of the Big Me, which emphasizes external success, Brooks challenges us, and himself, to rebalance the scales between our “résumé virtues”—achieving wealth, fame, and status—and our “eulogy virtues,” those that exist at the core of our being: kindness, bravery, honesty, or faithfulness, focusing on what kind of relationships we have formed.  It was a recommended reading for the Class of 2018 during employer meetings that the Dean of Students had in the summer of 2015.

The discussion will be informal and address the themes that arise in Chapters 3-5;  and how they relate to lawyers, law school, and the legal community.

Lunch will be provided.

Pictures of Beijing’s skyline under “Red Alert” levels of pollution flooded the internet in late 2015. The government, in response, shut down hundreds of factories and canceled hundreds of flights – an action not at all surprising to western business leaders who regularly deal with environment-related disruptions. The coming years will continue to present new challenges, especially considering the COP21 agreements and China’s next five-year plan (the much-discussed Shísānwǔ) which will likely change the framework under which many global organizations operate. How are environmental regulations affecting western and domestic companies in China? Join the Council on Global Affairs and the University of Chicago for an expert analysis of pollution, carbon trading, and all of China’s environmental priorities.

Who better to talk about the Connected City than Dan Doctoroff, former Deputy Mayor of NYC, former CEO of Bloomberg L.P., and current Chairman and CEO of Sidewalk Labs (www.sidewalklabs.com/), the urban innovation company he founded in partnership with Google. 

 Recently, New York started rolling out its LinkNYC project, which will replace the traditional phone booths all throughout the city. The new devices promise to be the future citizen interactive portal with free 1 GB wifi, large screens to search the internet, and free calls - and it pays for itself through advertising. Sidewalk Labs is a key partner in the consortium, CityBridge, that is implementing and will be maintaining the LinkNYC (www.link.nyc) project with CIVIQ Smartscapes and Qualcomm. This is hailed as the biggest step into the future of the smart connected city.

Dan Doctoroff

Chairman and CEO, Sidewalk Labs
http://www.sidewalklabs.com/

Dan Doctoroff is Chairman and CEO of Sidewalk Labs, the urban innovation company that he founded in partnership with Google. Sidewalk Labs will develop products, services and platforms at the intersection of the physical and digital worlds to help make cities become more efficient, responsive, resilient and greener.

Dan was President and Chief Executive Officer of Bloomberg L.P., the leading provider of news and information to the global financial community, until December 2014. During his tenure at Bloomberg, Dan led the company through the most severe financial crisis since the Great Depression by pursuing an aggressive strategy of investment, focused on enhancing the company's core Terminal product, expanding into enterprise products and services, creating new businesses in government, law and energy, and building the company's news operations, including its acquisition of Businessweek. During the seven years that he led the company, despite the financial crisis, Bloomberg's organic revenues nearly doubled.

Prior to joining Bloomberg L.P., Dan served as Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Rebuilding for the City of New York. With Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Dan led the city's dramatic economic resurgence, spearheading the effort to reverse New York's fiscal crisis after 9/11 through a five-borough economic development strategy. This plan included the most ambitious land-use transformation in the city's modern history; the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site; the largest affordable housing program ever launched by an American city; and the formation of new Central Business Districts and Industrial Business Zones. Dan also led the creation of PlaNYC, a 127-point plan designed to create the first environmentally sustainable 21st century city that sets the course for a 30% reduction in global warming emissions by 2030.

Before joining the Bloomberg administration, Dan was Managing Partner of the private equity investment firm Oak Hill Capital Partners. While at Oak Hill, Dan founded NYC2012, the organization that spearheaded efforts to bring the Olympic Games to the city.

Dan serves on the Boards of the University of Chicago, World Resources Institute, United States Olympic Committee, Bloomberg Philanthropies and Human Rights First. He is the founder of Target ALS, which raises funds for and has established a new model of collaboration to advance ALS research. He is a founder and chairman of Culture Shed, an innovative new cultural institution at the Hudson Yards in Manhattan. A graduate of Harvard College and The Law School at the University of Chicago, Dan lives in New York City with his wife, Alisa. The Doctoroffs have three grown children.

Loyola University Chicago School of law is hosting the 2016 Patent Law Interview Program on Thursday, August 4 and Friday, August 5 in Chicago, Illinois.  This is a nationwide interview program that targets patent law employers, rising 2L and 3L students, and students in Intellectual Property LLM programs. 

 

Students can register online at https://patentlawregistration.luc.edu/lawstudents/Default.aspx. At this stage of registration, you will only need to enter some basic information (you will upload your resume and bid on interviews later).  Please note that our school is listed alphabetically as The University of Chicago Law School on the registration drop down menu of law schools.  OCS will be paying the $35 registration fee for our students, so you will not be charged anything when you register online. Registration closes Thursday, March 10. Late registrations are not accepted.  The program is entirely pre-selected, which means that students submit resumes and transcripts to bid on interviews with the employers they are interested in, and employers then review the materials of the students who bid on them and select the students they wish to interview at the program.  Students with undergraduate or graduate degrees in engineering or a technical science should consider registering for the program. You do not need to be patent bar eligible to register, although the vast majority of employers participating in the program are seeking patent bar eligible students.  

 

Registration Confirmation

Students will receive an email confirmation of their registration.  Students who do not see this confirmation email in their inbox should check their junk mail folders.  In past years we have had some trouble with important program emails being routed to junk mail, especially if a student is using a gmail or other non-school email address. 

 

Once you have registered, the program staff will communicate with you directly via email to the address that you entered when registering for the program.

 

Student Eligibility

The 2016 Patent Law Interview Program will be accepting registrations from:

 

ü  JD students graduating in May/June 2017 (3Ls)

ü  JD students graduating in May/June 2018 (2Ls)

ü  JD students graduating in December 2016/January 2017 (3Ls)

ü  JD students graduating in December 2017/January 2018 (2Ls)

ü  Students in Intellectual Property LLM programs with anticipated graduation dates in 2017 and 2018 (LLMs)

 

Please note that on the student registration form these will be the only graduation date options available on the drop down menu.  Students who will graduate before the program is held in August 2016, and students who plan to graduate after May/June 2018, are not eligible for the 2016 Patent Law Interview Program, and should not register.

 

Dual degree students should use the date that they will complete both of their degrees as their anticipated graduation date. 

 

Class Years

Please note that in past years most employers were interested in interviewing rising 2L students, a significantly smaller group of employers were interested in interviewing rising 3L students. 

IMPORTANT:  Students who have been selected for interviews must register on-site at the interview hotel (Embassy Suites Chicago - Downtown/Lakefront) either the evening before their interview (4:00 pm - 7:00 pm) or the morning of their interviews (7:30 am - 8:30 am). The on-site registration requirement is MANDATORY and Loyola will make no exceptions.

Students need only register once on-site to be considered registered for interviews on both days. Students who have not registered by 8:30 am on Thursday, August 4 will have all of their Thursday slots given to alternates; students who still have not registered by 8:30 am on Friday, August 5 will have all of their Friday interview slots given to alternates.

Alternate scheduling will take place in the registration room at 8:30 am each day, and all students selected as alternates who are interested in being scheduled for empty interview slots resulting from no-shows must be present in the registration room at that time.

When making travel plans, please also bear in mind that a few law firms choose to hold receptions on either Wednesday evening or Thursday evening. These receptions are an excellent networking opportunity.  

Please note that there will be employers who will interview one day and some who will interview both days.  You may have interviews on either or both days.
