Fall 2011

On Thursday, September 22, 2011, the Thomas M. Cooley Law School hosted its Symposium:


Who's Mining Your Business: Privacy Infringement and Profits
The symposium will focus on data mining, the practice of collecting and selling data. That data is later analyzed, interpreted, and sold. The symposium will provide an opportunity to discuss how data mining can potentially infringe on an Internet user's privacy and what the legal response to such infringement should be.

Watch a video excerpt of speaker Andreas Weigend, Ph.D., a Behavior Marketing Expert, and former Chief Scientist for Amazon.com »

Our panel of experts will take an informative and in-depth look at two issues:

Issue I: Data Mining and Brokering: How It's Happening and Why?

Issue II: What Can or Should be Done to Protect Your Information?

*Organized and planned by: Dayana Echeverry and Monique Howery

 

Fall 2010

On Thursday, September 16, 2010, the Thomas M. Cooley Law School hosted its Symposium:



Renewing the Compact: How Article V Empowers the People of All the States
The symposium focused on Article V of the United States Constitution and its provision that grants States the right to call a Convention for proposing Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This constitutional provision has been the subject of increased debate due to the increased power of the Federal government since the early twentieth century. These issues are increasingly polarized within the political community considering the rising federal debt, the recent health care legislation, calls for government transparency, and other issues leading current political debates.

 

Fall 2009

On October 14, 2009, the Thomas M. Cooley Law School hosted its Symposium:

The "CSI EFFECT" - Juror Expectations For Forensic Science: Does Reality Meet the Standard?

On TV, DNA analysis takes minutes, latent fingerprints are lifted from a host of unusual locations, and video enhancement is state of the art. But in reality, scientific technology does not yet permit the development of fingerprints on many surfaces. The limits of forensic science are largely unknown to the general population, and cases can be backlogged for more than a year. Does the "CSI Effect" actually exist? Do jurors have expectations that cannot be met, resulting in acquittals or hung-juries, whereas, the same evidence presented ten years ago would have resulted in a conviction? This year's distinguished speakers answered these questions from all aspects of the criminal justice system. We were pleased to host the following speakers at the Thomas M. Cooley Law School:

GREGOIRE MICHAUD, Michigan State Police, Assistant Division Commander, Forensic Science Division
LISA LINDSEY, Assistant Prosecutor, Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney's Office
FRANK REYNOLDS, Foster, Swift, Collins, and Smith, P.C.
HONORABLE DONALD SHELTON, Chief Judge, Pro Tem 22nd Circuit Trial Court, Washtenaw County
RONALD BRETZ, Professor, Thomas M. Cooley Law School, Moderator

 

SPRING 2009

On March 18th, 2009, the Thomas M. Cooley Law Review hosted its Symposium:

Supreme Court Election Campaigns: A Threat to Fair and Impartial Courts?

The current national trend of increasingly expensive and politicized state supreme court election campaigns was most recently escalated in the 2008 judicial elections nationally and in the Michigan Supreme Court election in particular.  Now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court is the case ofCaperton v. Massey Coal Company which has emerged as a landmark case over the spiraling role of special-interest spending in judicial elections.  The case raises critical questions of due process and recusal.  Many, including former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, are concerned about the large amounts of money now going into judicial elections and the anonymous nature of the spending.  They ask whether justice is now "for sale".  The distinguished speakers explored the campaign finance facts of recent Michigan Supreme Court election campaigns, the legal theory and implications of the Caperton case, the concerns of many in the business community on the present role of money in judicial campaigns, and the public financing alternative for state supreme court election campaigns. 

We were pleased to host the following speakers at Thomas M. Cooley Law School:
