Professor Susan Williams is organizing a conference entitled "Responding to Hate," which will be held on Oct. 3rd in Whittenberger Auditorium from 1:30 - 6:00 p.m.. Morris Dees, the co-founder and Chief Trial Counsel of the Southern Poverty Law Center will be the keynote speaker. He will be followed by a series of panels on a variety of related topics, including: hate groups, hate crimes and the first amendment, individual and community responses to hate, and the ideological roots of hate. The colloquium is free and open to the entire Bloomington community and law students are, of course, encouraged to attend.

The conference is a response to the tragic event this summer in which a former IU student murdered Won-Joon Yoon, a graduate student in Economics. This crime brought forth an outpouring of sympathy to the family and a determination on the part of the entire Bloomington community to put an end to such hate crimes. The conference represents an effort by the University to bring its resources to the community and help in the process of understanding this tragedy.


Professor Fred Cate addressed the governor and the governing council of the prefecture of Kumamoto in Japan on Sunday about balancing access to public records with personal privacy.

Professor David Fidler's book Empire and Community: Edmund Burke's Writings and Speeches on International Relations has been published by Westview Press. Professor Fidler co- edited this book with Jennifer M. Welsh, University Lecturer and Fellow of Somerville College, University of Oxford.

Professor Fidler delivered the Dean's Lecture at the University of Kansas School of Law on September 16th. His topic was "International Law and Global Public Health." This lecture was based on an article of the same name that will be published this fall in the University of Kansas Law Review.
