Indiana Law Annotated for March 21 2016

March 21, 2016
Read this ILA on the web

This Week in the Law School

We hope you had a wonderful, relaxing spring break. Ours was spent assembling this 3500-word issue of ILA, a new record. We're down to the final weeks of the spring semester; lots to knock out before everyone departs for their summer adventures. The weather is warmer, the days are longer, the sun is out, the Baier Hall floors are waxed and polished. What better way to celebrate than by attending some wonderful indoor academic activities?

This week we're excited to welcome I. Glenn Cohen on Wednesday for the George P. Smith, II Distinguished Professorship-Chair Lecture. This is one of the premier lectures of the academic year, and Mr. Cohen is a world-renowned — not to mention engaging — expert on bioethics and the law. Your attendance is much appreciated.

You can attend a panel on Justice Scalia's legacy, hear from immigration attorneys, interact with an IP practitioner-in-residence, learn from one of the most influential women in sports, go to the annual PAD fashion show — look for sneak preview of Vera Wang's new Supreme Court robes — or participate in one of the 417 events Bloomberg Law is putting on this week. And on Friday, enjoy the classical stylings of guitarist Steve Brew in our latest Baier Hall Presents concert series.

Finally, a quick word about the U.S. News rankings. Yes, we're incredibly proud to be back in the top-25. But it's the people — our great students, our tremendous faculty, our dedicated alumni and staff — that make this place special, not a number. That said, (party emoji).

George P. Smith, II Distinguished Professorship-Chair Lecture

Harvard Law's I.

Smith, II Distinguished Professorship-Chair Lecture. In this talk Prof. Cohen will examine three trends in the globalization of healthcare involving the travel of patients and physicians and the legal and ethical issues they raise: medical tourism — the travel of patients from one country to another in order to receive health care; medical migration — when physicians trained in one country are retained to practice medicine in another; and medical repatriation — when a patient (usually an undocumented alien) falls ill in one country and the hospital providing care seeks to re-nationalize the patient to the patient's country of citizenship without the patient's consent. Lunch will be provided. Moot Court Room, noon.

American Constitution Society Elections

ACS is holding elections this week. Available positions include president, vice president, programming director, public relations director, secretary, treasurer, and class representative (for each class).

Even more appealing are the opportunities provided to ACS chapter leaders to attend student and national conventions free of charge and to gain access to the ACS jobs database and valuable contacts, networking events, and resume roundtables. In addition, ACS student leaders have the opportunity to work closely with a number of Law School professors, whose mentorship frequently proves invaluable, and with outside academics and practitioners, with whom relationships are also extraordinarily beneficial for personal and professional development. Room 120, 4:30 p.m.

Obergefell and the Constitutional Canon

Jane Schacter, the William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Stanford, will join us for a lecture on "Obergefell and the Constitutional Canon."

Prof. Schacter will look at the decision in relation to other 14th Amendment landmarks, including Brown, Loving, and Roe, and in relation to the other major decisions in the court's jurisprudence on sexual orientation. Prof. Schacter will focus on what Obergefell suggests to us about the current state of constitutional law and politics. Room 122, noon.

Announcements

March Against Hunger

Join SBA and BLSA as we March Against Hunger. We will be in the lobby at lunch for the month of March collecting monetary donations for the Hoosier Hills Food Bank. Like Talk Turkey to Me, each $1 you donate will get you a "shoe" to decorate and hang on the bulletin board outside of the SBA and BLSA offices. For all you competitive spirits out there (and let's be honest it's all of you), there is an Indiana state-wide competition among law schools for who can raise the most donations for each school's food bank. Indiana Law is officially a top-25 law school, but let's be number one in philanthropy.

Maurer vs. McKinney Softball Tournament Sign-ups

Sign-ups for the 3rd Annual Maurer v. McKinney Softball tournament will begin today at noon.

There are nine spots reserved on the 3L for those students who played the past two years. If these students do not sign up on the 21st then they will lose their priority spot. There will be a wait list for each team. Sign-ups will continue throughout the week during the noon hour until all of the spots are filled. Players must purchase a shirt — the design is awesome. Purchasing a shirt for $15 will also get you a spot on the team, and a meal ticket. The $15 (cash/check/card) is due the moment you sign up. Shirts are available to spectators for $15 and will include a meal ticket. All shirt orders are due by Friday at 1 p.m. Questions? Contact maurerlawsba@gmail.com.
