The Dean Search committee has invited three finalists for the deanship to meet with the Law School community students, staff, and faculty this week and next. These meetings, to be held in the Moot Court Room, will allow for a very brief statement by the candidate, followed by a question-and-answer session. The three candidates, with their scheduled meeting times, are as follows:

Lauren Robel (our acting dean, Val Nolan Professor of Law, and formerly our associate dean here at the IU School of Law Bloomington), Thursday, Jan. 30, at noon.

Professor Charles W. Mooney, Jr.,( of the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he recently has served as both Associate Dean and Interim Dean), Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 12:15.

Thomas S. Ulen (Alumni Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Illinois, where he also holds an appointment at the Institute of Government and Public Affairs and serves as the director of the Master of Arts in Public Administration Program), Tuesday, Feb. 11, noon.

A lunch of sandwiches, chips, cookies, and drinks will be provided.


Professor Hannah Buxbaum's article entitled "Assessing Sovereign Interests in Cross-Border Discovery Disputes: Lessons from Aerospatiale" was published in the Texas International Law Journal.

Professor Fred Cate has been named director of the university's new Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research. The center is unusual in that it will not only seek to draw on the expertise of faculty who teach and research in the area of cybersecurity, but also that of officials from the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology, University Information Technology Services, Risk Management, and the University Counsel's Office, who actually have day-to-day responsibility for computer and network security issues and are regarded as being among the nation's top cybersecurity practitioners. The center will hold seminars, host guest speakers, and spearhead the university's application for National Science Foundation funding in this area. Professor Cate will continue to teach at the Law School while serving as director.

In addition, Professor Cate's article, "Constitutional Issues in Information Privacy," appears in the current issue of the Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law Review. Co-authored with Robert Litan, vice president and director of the Economic Studies Program at the Brookings Institution, and formerly associate director of the Office of Management and Budget and deputy assistant attorney general, the article examines the extent to which the Constitution either requires the government to, or restricts the government from, enacting laws designed to protect information privacy. It grew out of a working group of attorneys, law professors, government officials, and privacy advocates that Professor Cate and Dr. Litan organized for the AEI-Brookings Joint Center on Regulatory Studies.

The program will take place on Thursday, Feb. 6, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in room 216 at the Law School. The ABA will provide lunch (pizza and soft drinks) for those attending.

The panel of experienced practitioners will reflect the Labor and Employment Law Section's customary variety of perspectives (employer, union, employee, and neutral) and share real-life situations and information. The panel members are Craig Borowski (Baker and Daniels); Nora Macey (Macey, Swanson and Allman); Johanna Maple (EEOC); Raifael Williams (NLRB); and Professor Terry A. Bethel.

There also will be a free drawing for one of the section's leading books in the field.

If you're interested in working in this area of law, come meet and talk with leading labor and employment lawyers who practice locally.
