Throughout the school year, events and conferences are organized at the cutting edge of health law and health policy, motivated in part by the passions of interested students. Recent events include keynote speeches and intimate conversations with current and former government officials, including FDA Commissioner Peggy Hamburg, former HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, and Senator Richard Blumenthal; Academic debates on health law cases pending before the U.S. Supreme Court; major conferences focused on the evolution of the health care industry and the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid; and panels focused on topics ranging from gun policy and abortion to medical ethics and social justice. The center also hosts many career and networking events throughout the year. The Environmental Humanities Initiative organizes and promotes campus events with researchers in the humanities, natural and social sciences who focus on formulating new research questions and finding new ways to solve longstanding problems in the humanities and social sciences at this time of profound environmental transformation.

In their forthcoming book Animal Crisis, Professors Alice Crary and Lori Gruen examine “the complex social and political contexts in which animals are harmed, revealing the links between our callous and cruel attitudes towards wildlife and the same attitudes towards vulnerable human groups.” In this talk, moderated by Emma LeBlanc `24, Crary and Gruen will present their innovative approach to the argument that “there can be no animal liberation without human emancipation.” The Yale Federalist Society is proud to present a debate on judicial reform involving Professors Stephen Sachs and Kermit Roosevelt III. The animals are legal property, but their lawyers have spent years pursuing a reclassification as legal entities. This program continues to face challenges: arguments for legal personality in common law systems can look like arguments for real personality, and the strategy can go crazy when exported from common law jurisdictions to civil jurisdictions. Learn from the Honorable Daphne Barak-Erez of the Israeli Supreme Court and Rabbi Jason Rubenstein of the Slifka Center at Yale as they discuss the current state of reproductive rights in Israeli and Jewish law. Kosher lunch to go provided! The center is an active partner in interdisciplinary health programs on campus: Yale`s Program for Biomedical Ethics hosts a series of evening ethics seminars throughout the year. Professors and students from across the university are encouraged to participate. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted industrial slaughterhouses in the United States and their impact on the vulnerable creatures – human and animal – they exploit. But the severity of these impacts is the result of a long history of poor regulatory oversight that has contributed to unsafe conditions for slaughterhouse workers, environmental degradation and severe animal suffering.

Prison logics permeate our thinking about humans and animals. We imagine that a harsher sentence will reduce crime and make society safer. We hope that more convictions and police services for animal crimes will protect animals from cruelty. But is the imprisonment of humans the appropriate response to violence against nonhuman animals? Mindy Jane Roseman, Director of the International Law Program, and Bradley Hayes, Program Coordinator, Bradley Hayes, will sit at a table in the Ruttenberg Dining Room to answer questions and share information about YLS` opportunities and support for legal research and international learning. Join a panel with members of the ABA`s International Animal Law Committee who received the adoption of the ABA resolution on the proposed draft treaty, including the treaty`s potential to prevent pathogenic flooding and future pandemics. Come with a cup of tea and chat, paint, doodle, create your own craft project, write a message of gratitude, or learn a skill with your wellness consultant Catherine Banson and others. (I hope we can do nails too!) If you`re feeling torn between public interest law and more traditional corporate work, hear from a panel of 3Ls who worked for plaintiff or public good companies over the summer. Panelists have worked in companies with different areas of activity, including civil rights, environmental law, economic justice, data protection and antitrust law.
