Faculty and Staff News
Prof. Ken Dau-Schmidt presented “Will Capital Still Need Labor?: Regulating Employment in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” at a Roundtable On Artificial Intelligence and Employment at Oxford University, Oxford, England on November 27, 2018.
Prof. Rob Fischman's chapter on forestry is now published in the Environmental Law Institute's concise volume on "Legal Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in the United States: Summary & Key Recommendations" (Gerrard & Dernbach eds. 2018). A larger tome containing the full analysis will be published later this year. Last week, Fischman was also elected treasurer of the Association of American Law Schools' section on natural resources and energy law.
Prof. Sarah Jane Hughes has two articles coming out this month. The first is her annual contribution to the ABA's Business Lawyer's Cyberspace Survey. The article, with two co-authors (including Tom Kierner, '15, now at Womble Bond Dickinson in Atlanta), reviews the most important e-payments and financial services developments from June 15, 2017 to June 15, 2018. The second article, "More Steps Toward Fully Electronic Interbank Check Collection and Return: Amendments to Federal Reserve Board Regulation CC and a Regulatory Resolution of a Circuit Court Split," will appear in the January 2019 issue of the UCC Law Journal. It evaluates 2017 final rules promulgated by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System that create new classes of electronic payments instruments -- including the "electronic check" -- and establish a presumption in disputes about alterations of checks that the depository bank should bear the loss if the check itself is not available at the time of the dispute because of truncation. Both journals are peer-reviewed publications.
Congratulations to Prof. Victor Quintanilla, who has been named an Indiana University Bicentennial Professor.
Welcome to our newest Career Services Office employees: Senior Director Kate Caldwell and Director Lauren Sorrell, '12.

Basic mediation and restorative justice training

The training provides the background and skills necessary to work as a community mediator and restorative justice practitioner and qualifies participants to volunteer in CJAM’s programs.
The winter training will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. over five weekend days, February 16, 17, 23, 24, and March 2 at the Law School.
