    This day-long conference is co-sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics, the Center for International and Comparative Law at Duke Law School, Women's and Sexuality Studies, and the Center for LGBT Life. Recent efforts to combat violence and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity have made remarkable progress internationally. But these efforts have also been met with resistance and backlashes in some countries. The rapid changes in the legal, political, social and cultural landscapes for LGBT individuals raise fundamental questions about the strategies that activists, lawyers and NGOs deploy to promote LGBT equality. The symposium will bring together a small group of leading scholars, activists and attorneys whose work focuses on LGBT issues in different parts of the world to share insights and experiences across the disciplinary and academic-practitioner divides.

    Technology-Assisted Review Conference 8:00 AMOff-campus

    Washington Plaza Hotel, Washington DC - The conference critically examines the usefulness and effectiveness of "technology-assisted" review as a tool whose proponents assert will substantially reduce ediscovery costs. "Technology-assisted" review is also referred to sometimes as "predictive-coding" review or "computer-assisted" review. Its utility was challenged and upheld in Da Silva Moore (2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23350 (S.D.N.Y. Feb. 24, 2012)), a decision rendered by Magistrate Judge Andrew Peck and confirmed by U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter (11 Civ. 1279 (ALC)(AJP)). Under the new technology, senior lawyers review a few thousand documents for relevancy and privilege, which provides information for artificial intelligence to do the same for the remainder of the electronically stored information in an iterative process, potentially substantially reducing the costs of manual review.

    American Jewish Institutions and Organizational Innovation 12:00 PMWest Duke 101

    Using Theory to Inform Practice, Using Success to Inform PractitionersIn recent decades, research on organizational innovation has usefully helped business leaders guide their firms through changing market conditions. These lessons have helped companies survive the introduction of new technologies, navigate changing market environments, and rejuvenate old institutions into new markets. While consultants to nonprofits have encouraged community and philanthropic organizations to adopt these same lessons, very few have. This is especially true in the Jewish world, which remains dominated by institutions that have been criticized for pursuing costly strategies and out-of-date priorities. Nonetheless, there are some Jewish leaders and organizations that have injected dynamism into American Jewish life that follows the template of organizational innovation.This conference is designed to highlight the achievements of some of these organizations, understand their experiences within a common theoretical understanding of institutional renewal, and synthesize lessons for other Jewish organizations and communities who seek to rejuvenate Jewish life through creative organizations and organizational strategies.

    CANCELED: DELPF Spring Symposium: Environmental Justice 9:00 AMLaw School 3041

    DELPF plans to examine the development of American environmental justice law and policy in the twenty years since President Bill Clinton issued Executive Order 12,898, which mandated that "each Federal agency shall make achieving environmental justice part of its mission." This symposium will explore domestic environmental justice issues as well as the idea of leakage of environmental harms from the United States to developing countries. That is, that the negative environmental externalities of the United States economy - those that inspired the American environmental justice movement - have shifted overseas. Examples of environmental leakage include the export of American electronic waste ("e-waste"), the United States' non-ratification of the Basel Convention, and climate justice realities arising from American carbon dioxide emissions. For more information, please contact Ben Kahn at benjamin.kahn@duke.edu.

    44th Annual DLJ Administrative Law Symposium: Taking Administrative Law to Tax 9:00 AMLaw School 3041

    The foundations of settled law are shifting as courts begin to apply administrative law doctrines to the rather insular world of tax administration. These developments present an ideal opportunity to reflect on the general validity and utility of both general administrative law principles and statutory commands of the APA. Is tax administration somehow fundamentally different from administration in other areas? Does what happens in tax call into question any important assumptions or practices in general administrative law? Are there reforms that might usefully be made, either in general administrative law rules or in tax administration? These are the questions for reflection as the Symposium takes administrative law to tax. For more information, please contact Devon Damiano at devon.damiano@lawnet.duke.edu. Registration at http://dlj.law.duke.edu.

    Regulating Climate: What Role for the Clean Air Act? 8:30 AMDoris Duke Center at Sarah P. Duke Gardens

    The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University, the Duke Law School, and the Harvard Law School cordially invite you to attend a one day conference examining climate change policy and the Clean Air Act.

    This conference will focus on what role the Clean Air Act should play in both short and medium-term strategies to reduce greenhouse gases. This topic carries particular relevance in light of EPA's recent announcements that it will consider not only whether an endangerment finding for carbon dioxide is appropriate, but also whether to grant California's waiver request to impose its own limits on vehicle CO2 emissions, opening the door for other states to adopt the same standards.

    Please join us for a practical discussion with a select group of the nation's leading air and climate experts.
