Welcome to Indiana Law Annotated. Although this past summer was probably unlike anything you've ever experienced, we hope it was pleasant and productive. A special welcome goes to the Class of 2023. Even though the environment on campus isn't as physically close-knit as usual, we hope that you're settling in comfortably and feeling at home.
ILA is published every Sunday afternoon. It's your one-stop resource for everything going on at the Law School, albeit most of it virtually this semester. If you're in Baier Hall, ILA contents also appear on the virtual sign on the first floor.
Best wishes to all of you for a safe, healthy, and enjoyable semester.
Ken Turchi, '83
Assistant Dean, ILA Editor

Jumpstart: Prepare to Practice
This year, the Jerome Hall Law Library's summer research tutorials are going virtual. The law librarians are working to make videos and other materials on several legal research topics: administrative law, legislative history, docket research, Indiana legal research, and a general refresher course. These materials will be put on Canvas and made available to anyone who is interested. You'll be notified when the sessions are finished and will be provided with instructions on accessing the Canvas page.
In addition to these sessions, the law librarians are available virtually to help with any research needs you may have over the summer. Please email any librarian directly, fill out the Ask a Librarian form, or use chat reference to set up a reference appointment.
Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research Speaker Series: Kristen Eichensehr, "The Law and Politics of Cyberattack Attribution"
Attribution of cyberattacks requires identifying those responsible for bad acts, including states, and accurate attribution is a crucial predicate in contexts as diverse as criminal indictments, insurance coverage disputes, and cyberwar. But the difficult technical side of attribution is just the precursor to highly contested legal and policy questions about when and how to accuse governments of responsibility. Although politics may largely determine whether attributions are made public, this talk argues that when cyberattacks are publicly attributed to states, such attributions should be governed by legal standards. Co-hosted with the Ostrom Workshop.
Kristen Eichensehr is a professor of law at the University of Virginia. Eichensehr joined the Law School in 2020 after serving on the faculty of the UCLA School of Law.
Noon-1:00 p.m. EDT. Register to attend.
IP Colloquium: Irene Caliboli, Texas A&M
Join the Center for IP Research and Professor Marshall Leaffer for the 2020 IP Colloquium featuring speakers addressing international issues in intellectual property.
Today’s speaker, Irene Calboli (Texas A&M), will present “Bridging the Trans-Atlantic Divide: How and Why protecting Geographical Indications Could Also Benefit the United States.” This lecture will address the highly contested topic of Geographical Indications of Origin (GIs) in the framework of the (now suspended) Trans-Atlantic trade negotiations between the European Union and the United States. It will move beyond the traditional, and often misguided, debate based on the divide between "Old" and "New" worlds, and consider instead the benefit that protecting GIs can also have for the economy of the United States.
Two hours of Indiana CLE credit has been approved for this talk. To RSVP or for more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. 1:05-3:05 p.m.
