  • Nov 15 The Year of the Woman, Part II 12:30 PMLaw School Star Commons

    The 2018 midterm election is being acknowledged as The Year of the Woman, Part II; a reference to the 1992 election that saw women running in record numbers following Justice Thomas' Supreme Court confirmation. But 1992, which resulted in four female senators heading to D.C., has nothing on 2018. The midterm elections saw a 75% increase in women of color Congressional nominees since 2012, sustained by over 400 Black women who ran for office at every level, and a record number of Native American women candidates, among others. WLSA invites you to take a moment to celebrate the record-breaking number of women elected to Congress (over 100!) with candy, an Instagram photo-op (follow @dukelawwlsa), and a brainstorming session about how to keep the momentum going and improve election results in 2020.

  • Mar 22 The Legal Frameworks of Work After the End of Employment 9:00 AMTBD

    This symposium will explore how the law of work does or should respond to the changing shape of work relationships in the contemporary economy. Three major phenomena will be explored. First: As the platform economy enables millions to provide services through an entity that disclaims any legal responsibility for the conditions of employment, how should law respond? Second: How should labor or employment law address the rapid spread of automation, which in the most futuristic sense threaten or promise to eliminate work? Third: global migrations of peoples and capital in a regulatory frame that renders migrant workers extremely vulnerable and aggregated capital apparently invincible, have generated historically unprecedented levels of inequality while political forces have galvanized nationalist backlash against some of the most vulnerable workers. What soft-law or hard law regulatory frameworks are developing to empower workers? Sponsored by Law & Contemporary Problems. For more information, please contact Will Sowers at wps9@duke.edu.
