ATTENTION - ALL STUDENTS INTERESTED FEDERAL SECTOR LABOR LAW

The 22nd annual Federal Sector Labor Relations and Labor Law Program

On Thursday, September 23, 2004, the law school will present its 22nd annual Federal Sector Labor Relations and Labor Law Program. This is the longest running conference on federal sector and postal labor relations and labor law held outside of Washington, D.C. The theme of this year's program is 25 Years Under the Civil Service Reform Act: The Good, the Bad, and the Unfolding. The morning portion of the program features two comprehensive plenary panel discussions by nationally recognized leaders in the federal workplace. These are followed by concurrent workshops, providing participants with the opportunity to discuss specific issues with experts in the federal labor relations field.

Law students (JD only) enrolled at Chicago-Kent are welcome to attend any or all of the program sessions free of charge. Course materials, luncheon and reception are not included, however, copies of the materials will be available in the library after the program.

If you are interested in volunteering to work at the conference, in exchange for a copy of the course materials and an opportunity to network at the conference luncheon and reception, please let us know when you stop by the office (Suite 673) to register, or by e-mailing Rae Ann (rvicario.) Pre-registration is required no later than Tuesday, September 21, 2004.


ATTENTION- ALL STUDENTS INTERESTED IN INTERNATIONAL LAW

The 16th annual Henry Morris Lecture in International and Comparative Law

On Thursday, September 30 at 12 noon in the auditorium, please plan on attending the 16th annual Henry Morris Lecture in International and Comparative Law. This year's lecture, "The Uncertain Self-Identity of International Criminal Courts" will be given by Mirjan R. Damaska, Sterling Professor of Law, Yale University.

Professor Damaska contends that without an understanding of the particular goals and contexts of international criminal adjudication, it is difficult to assess the adequacy of the substantive and procedural law used by international criminal courts.

He will analyze the broad array of objectives judges have set for themselves in international criminal courts and show that they are often, in his view, conflicting. He will explain what consequences this has for international criminal litigation.

His proposed solution is to abandon some of these ambitious goals and to modify others in order to make adjudication in these courts effective.

Mirjan Damaska has been a professor of law at Yale University since 1976. He is currently Sterling Professor of Law, which is Yale's highest faculty honor. During the early 1970's, he was a professor of law at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Zagreb, where he served as acting dean. He has also been a member of the international faculty of comparative law in Luxembourg. Professor Damaska was educated at the Universities of Zagreb, Luxembourg, and Ljubljana. He is a member of the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the board of directors of the American Association for the Comparative Study of Law, and the International Academy of Comparative Law. Professor Damaska is the author of nine books and over 80 articles on comparative law, criminal law, criminal and civil procedure, evidence, constitutional law and legal history. His works have been published in the U.S., Germany, the former Yugoslavia, Croatia, France, England, Chile and China.
