The Apprehension of Fraud: Policing Deception in Modern America

Description: Swindlers and salesmen have long been viewed as close cousins in the United States, some going so far as to suggest that con artistry and economic innovation are simply two sides of the same coin in American history. This storyline has recently resurfaced in the popular press to explain our own times: the showman P.T. Barnum is cast as a representative man and fraud is written off as the price we pay for living in a free, open, and entrepreneurial society.

In this lecture, Professor Blumenthal traverses the ambiguous borderland between capitalism and crime, providing an important corrective as she reconsiders the regulatory paths that American lawyers have pursued across time to redress the social harms resulting from misplaced trust.

Some are amateur scientists. Many are professional scientists.

“Committing the Truth” in the Deep State

  • University of Minnesota Law School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Description: In these polarized times, there is a striking bi-partisan consensus that government whistleblowers ought to be protected. Unsurprisingly, however, that consensus breaks down once we delve into the details of who counts as a whistleblower and what kinds of disclosures merit legal protection. In her talk, Professor Kitrosser considers two particularly controversial types of disclosures: First, those made by civil servants in the course of simply carrying out their jobs – for example, by writing scientific reports or making economic projections – where their stated conclusions conflict with their superiors’ preferences. Second, disclosures to the media that contain information that the executive branch has deemed classified.

Is My Bot Biased: The Effect of Technology on Access to Justice and Bias in the Legal Profession

Description: Technology continues to impact the delivery and availability of legal services, both in how lawyers practice law and how the public consumes legal services. The legal profession has long faced issues with equal access to justice and the uniform administration of justice. Evolving technology offers the possibility of a level playing field and the democratization of the law, but it could also perpetuate or exacerbate existing biases and prejudices in the justice system. In this session we will explore how evolving technology may eliminate or reduce bias or prejudice in the legal profession, in the practice of law, and in the administration of justice. But where these technologies fall short in the elimination of bias in the legal profession, we will discuss what lawyers and others in the legal industry can do to avoid perpetuating existing biases in the deliverability and accessibility of legal services. 

CLE Credits: One standard credit will be applied for.

Antitrust and Labor Law in the Age of Trump

  • University of St. Thomas School of Law (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The fall 2018 symposium of the University of St. Thomas Law Journal

Description: While the economy is seemingly booming, it is also undergoing wrenching transitions. Two areas of law most deeply affected by these transitions include labor law and antitrust law. We have seen efforts by the United States Supreme Court to radically restrict workers’ rights to organize and bargain collectively while simultaneously witnessing a rising tide of labor unrest. Similarly, we are watching vast and unprecedented concentrations of wealth, and the rise of a new generation of antitrust lawyers willing to challenge the dominant paradigm and support a return to antitrust law as an instrument of social justice. This program means to examine those developments in the law by bringing together some of the most exciting legal minds in both disciplines.
