Faculty Scholarship Presentations
Professor Dov Waisman has been invited to present his current work on “Reasonable Precaution for the Individual” at the 2014 Stanford/Harvard/Yale Junior Faculty Forum next month at Stanford. This year’s forum focuses on topics pertaining to public law and humanities, and Professor Waisman is one of approximately a dozen scholars chosen to present a paper. He is also the second Southwestern faculty member to be selected for this prestigious event; Professor David Fagundes was selected to participate in this forum in 2009.
Professors Kelly Strader and Molly Selvin will be presenting their paper on “The Larry King Murder: Gay Panic and Gay Shield Laws” in June at the 2014 AALS Workshop on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Issues in Washington, DC.
Professors Fagundes, Gupta, Hoyos and Tehranian were a part of the 5th Annual Meeting of the Association for Law, Property and Society (ALPS), held at the University of British Columbia. The four professors participated in panels on “Local Dwelling: Tacit and Explicit Exclusions,” “The Nexus of Physical and Intellectual Property,” “Property and Sovereignty in Early America,” “The Social and Cultural Functions of Intellectual Property,” and “The Upside of Unauthorized Use.” Professor Fagundes was also a member of the organizing committee for the conference.
Professor Byron Stier spoke at the Stanford Journal of Complex Litigation Symposium, “A Complicated Cleanup: The BP Oil Spill Litigation,” at Stanford.
