Global Seminar on Military Justice Reform

Military justice continues to face dramatic challenges. There are topical national controversies such as, in the United States, those arising from the treatment of sexual assault and battle-field crime. And there are rising expectations around the world for due process and the rule of law in the administration of justice by military courts. Because military justice systems regularly confront comparable issues, valuable insight into the goals, trajectory and tempo of law reform may be gained by discussion across national lines. What are the main issues and best strategies – legislative, litigative, “the court of public opinion” – for achieving reform? As in 2013, the seminar will not be a series of formal speeches, but rather, informed discussion by experts who are personally involved in reform efforts.

The Legal Medium: New Encounters of Art and Law

The Yale Journal of Law and Humanities will host an interdisciplinary symposium titled The Legal Medium: New Encounters of Art and Law. Leading artists and thinkers of our time will gather to engage in a series of panels, presentations, performances and an art exhibition. Rather than focusing on the practice of art law, this symposium will examine law as an artistic medium, in and from which artists create. It will focus on how artists encounter, take advantage of, and seek to mold law. Speakers include Amy Adler, Jack Balkin, Tania Bruguera, Mary Ellen Carroll, Joshua Decter, Keller Easterling, Liam Gillick, Kenny Goldsmith, Tehching Hsieh, David Joselit, Robert Post, Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento, Doris Sommer & Laura Wexler
