NEWS FROM THE FACULTY

Professor Roger Dworkin's newest book has been published by Indiana University Press. Early Warning: Cases and Ethical Guidance for Presymptomatic Testing in Genetic Diseases is co-authored by Professor Dworkin and colleagues from Indiana University's Poynter Center, Religious Studies Department, and School of Medicine. The book presents 29 case studies of ethical/legal issues that arise in presymptomatic testing for late-onset genetic diseases and offers guidelines for the appropriate handling of such issues. The project that culminated in the book was supported by a grant from the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications branch of the National Center for Human Genome Research.

Professor Dawn Johnsen spoke about Executive Privilege on a panel with Kenneth Starr at the University of Minnesota Law School on October 24, as part of a symposium called "Nixon Now: Presidential Power and Executive Privilege Twenty-Five Years Later."

Professor Jeff Stake delivered a paper on Free Speech and the Evolution of Ideas at the First Conference of the Society for Evolutionary Analysis in Law (SEAL) on October 17. He got lots of laughs.
