LEAFFER TO SPEAK TODAY ON COPYRIGHT AND MULTIPLE AUTHORSHIP
Professor Marshall Leaffer will give a talk this afternoon at 4:00 in the Lilly Library Lounge on "Copyright Law and Multiple Authorship." (Refreshments begin at 3:30.) All Law School faculty and students are cordially invited to attend.
STUDENT FORUM ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION CASES TOMORROW
As a follow-up to last week's panel discussion of key affirmative actions cases Bakke & Grutter and their impact on the Law School's admissions practices, we will hold an open student forum on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:00 p.m., to continue the conversations and to focus on the climate at our school. A light supper will be served. This event is sponsored by the Community Life Committee, SLA, BLSA, LLSA, APALSA, and ACS.
FRANKE LECTURE ON FEB. 27
Katherine Franke, of Columbia Law School, will give a public lecture in the Moot Courtroom from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27. The lecture, part of the year-long celebration by the Kinsey Institute of the 50th anniversary of the volume on women's sexuality, is titled "Theorizing Yes."
Professor Rob Fischman's latest article, "The National Wildlife Refuge System and the Hallmarks of Modern Organic Legislation," has just come out in Ecology Law Quarterly. The article explores the origins and precise meaning of the term "organic act," which is widely used in public land law. It argues that the evolution in the meaning of the term reflects larger shifts in the role of legislation in public resource management. The article illustrates this with an analysis of the 1997 Refuge Improvement Act, a substantial revision of the charter for the Refuge System and the first major statute governing public lands management enacted since 1976. Along the way, it attempts to show that the Refuge System's "dominant use" regime is an important model for sustainable resource management.
