AALS International Programs Breakfast
At the AALS annual meeting next January, the Global Center will once again host the Pacific McGeorge Breakfast for International Law Faculties and Members of the American Society of International Law's Teaching International Law Interest Group. Those who were able to attend last year's breakfast would likely agree that there was a stimulating discussion when attendees had the opportunity to say "Everything You Wish You Had Said During Yesterday's Presidential Workshop on Globalizing the Curriculum."
This coming January's breakfast will allow attendees to discuss "Converging Trends in Legal Education: Globalization Meets Experiential Legal Education." Please join in the discussion on Sat., Jan. 4, 2014, from 7 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. at the Riverside Suite, Third Floor, Sheraton New York.
Annual Pacific McGeorge Global Center Symposium: Injury as Cultural Practice
March 7-8, 2014
The Annual Pacific McGeorge Global Center Symposium will address some of the most difficult and important debates over injury now taking place in societies around the world. Issues will include the tension between physical and reputational injuries, relational and emotional harms, virtual injuries, the normalization and inequitable infliction of injury on vulnerable victims, the hidden issues of causation, and the paradoxical degradation of victims through legal actions meant to compensate them for their disabilities.
Participants will include social scientists as well as lawyers, and the subject matter will extend to Europe, the Middle East and Asia as well as North America. Professor Anne Bloom, Associate Dean of Faculty Scholarship at Pacific McGeorge and David Engel, Distinguished Service Professor of Law at SUNY Buffalo are organizing the conference.
