Molly Beutz Land - "Health Information and Human Rights" - Tuesday, September 15, 2009
Molly Beutz Land is an associate professor of law at New York Law School. Drawing on her human rights expertise and background as an IP litigator, Professor Land’s scholarship focuses on access to knowledge and the intersection of intellectual property and human rights. Her recent work investigates the role of cultural rights and technology in achieving democratic objectives and the respective responsibilities of states and international institutions in that process. At New York Law School, she teaches Civil Procedure, Conflict of Laws, International Intellectual Property, and International Human Rights and is affiliated with the Center for International Law, the Institute for Information Law and Technology, and the Justice Action Center. Prior to joining New York Law School, Professor Land was a visiting lecturer in law and the Robert M. Cover/Allard K. Lowenstein Fellow in International Human Rights at Yale Law School.
Professor Land’s interest in access to knowledge grows out of her work on economic rights and gender issues while co-teaching the Allard K. Lowenstein International Human Rights Clinic at Yale Law School and as the Robert L. Bernstein Fellow in International Human Rights at Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights. She has filed amicus briefs in cases challenging sexual harassment in schools and discrimination based on sexual orientation before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and has led fact-finding teams reporting on domestic violence against immigrant women in Minnesota, HIV/AIDS and women’s rights in Zambia, the lack of remedies for human rights violations in Kashmir, and the effect of zero-tolerance policies on the right to education in Connecticut. She has also been involved in efforts to use human rights arguments to interpret bilateral investment agreements. Professor Land has published on the role of democracy in protecting rights and advised human rights organizations on issues of international criminal law and procedure.
After graduation from Yale Law School in 2001, Professor Land clerked for the Honorable Denise Cote, U.S. District Judge, in the Southern District of New York. Between 2003 and 2005, she litigated copyright, trademark, and patent cases with Faegre & Benson LLP.
