Justice Web Collaboratory

Advisory Board Meeting

Chicago-Kent hosted the inaugural meeting of the Justice Web Collaboratory Advisory Board on April 1, 2000.  The advisory board consists of a diverse group of judges from across the country.  Amongst its ranks are Chief Judges from the Court of Appeals of two federal districts, Appeals Judges from two states, the Chief Judge of the Navajo Nation Supreme Court, and several state Superior and Circuit Court Judges.  In addition, several guests joined the advisory board's discussions, including representatives from the American Judges Association, Judicial Division of the American Bar Association, Federal Judges Association, and the Office of Justice Programs, Department of Justice. 

Chairman, Associate Justice George Nicholson from the California Third District Courts of Appeal, opened discussions by challenging the participants to assist in changing the way judges think about technology and educate judges on the implications of technology on the bench and in chambers.  This challenge resonated throughout the days discussions which can be broken down into several themes: (i) good governance; (ii) education; (iii) collaboration; (iv) public access to the courts; and, (v) information integration.  All of the participants left the meeting encouraged by the possibilities for judicial education, collaboration, and excited about providing judicial leadership for the Office of Judicial Programs' National Integration Resource Center. 

By the end of the day, it was clear to all that attended that the Advisory Board meeting brought together a team of judges that were willing to dream, work together, and help one another, their respective courts, and, indeed, all the judges and courts of the nation, to look higher and reach further, technologically, in coming years. 

 The Future of Public Sector Labor 

Management Relations Conference

On April 13-15, Chicago-Kent hosted a 3-day conference on “The Future of Public Sector Labor-Management Relations: Working Together to Achieve Excellence in the 21st Century.” 

It was cosponsored by the University of Washington, Cornell University, the Ford Foundation, and Chicago-Kent College of Law.  The conference featured, among others, former Secretary of Labor John Dunlop, EEOC Commissioner Paul Steven Miller, Theodore Kheel, and MIT Professor Thomas Kochan. 

Chicago Database Summit

On Thursday, April 20 and Friday, April 21, GLAPI hosted  meetings on our war crimes documentation database.  Many refer to these meetings as the Chicago Database Summit, or CHIDASU. 

Attendees included Scott Carlson, Wendy Betts and Sarah Warner from ABA/CEELI in Washington, and Julie Chadbourne from the ABA War Crimes Documentation office in Tirana, Albania.  We finalized revisions to the current database and “unveiled" the new generation database that the IPRO and Julian Mulla have been working on. 

General Augusto Pinochet

On Tuesday, April 25 at 10:00 a.m., the law school will be hosting Juan Garces, the leader of the multi-national legal team that represented nearly 3,000 cases of assassination, forced disappearance and torture in the Spanish case against General Augusto Pinochet. 

This event is being cosponsored by Chicago-Kent College of Law and the Heartland Alliance and will be broadcast via the World Wide Web.
