    What is Critical Race Theory and why is it under attack? (Part 2)

    What is Critical Race Theory and why is it under attack? (Part 2)

    What is critical race theory and why has this decades old academic concept recently come under attack in the halls of Congress and local school board meetings? Three scholarly experts on race and the law provide answers: Part 1 provides an accurate definition of CRT and look back at when and why it began. We will also explore the contemporary attacks on CRT and the battlegrounds where these attacks are happening. In Part 2, our guests examine how CRT can used as a tool to better understand today's legal practices and policies, from policing, voting rights, and mass incarceration to social justice movement, the rule of law, and even the confirmation hearing of now-Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

    The Supreme Court as art critic? ('Warhol v. Goldsmith')

    The Supreme Court as art critic? ('Warhol v. Goldsmith')

    While the artist Prince rocked fans for decades, an upcoming U.S. Supreme Court case concerning a 1981 portrait of him could potentially rock America's copyright law and fair use doctrine. 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘈𝘯𝘥𝘺 𝘞𝘢𝘳𝘩𝘰𝘭 𝘍𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘝𝘪𝘴𝘶𝘢𝘭 𝘈𝘳𝘵𝘴, 𝘐𝘯𝘤. 𝘷. 𝘓𝘺𝘯𝘯 𝘎𝘰𝘭𝘥𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘓𝘺𝘯𝘯 𝘎𝘰𝘭𝘥𝘴𝘮𝘪𝘵𝘩, 𝘓𝘵𝘥. is set to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on October 12, 2022, and has seemingly positioned the justices as art critics tasked with determining if famed pop artist Andy Warhol infringed on photographer Lynn Goldsmith's copyright of the photo. Or, is the silk-screen series that Warhol created based on Goldsmith's photo legal under copyright's fair use doctrine? The case pits one artist's copyright against another artist's ability to build upon prior works. Who should win? In this episode, the Duke Law Podcast turns to Jennifer Jenkins, clinical professor of law and director of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain at Duke, and Christopher Buccafusco, the Edward & Ellen Schwarzman Professor of Law at Duke Law, for answers. Transcript forthcoming.

    Reproductive rights & big data in a post-Dobbs world

    Reproductive rights & big data in a post-Dobbs world

    How could the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn the 1973 case Roe vs. Wade last June -- effectively ending a constitutional right to obtain an abortion -- affect your right to privacy, with law enforcement using personal tech and surveillance data to enforce state laws prohibiting abortion? Our guest for this episode, Duke Law Senior Lecturing Fellow Jolynn Dellinger, answers this question as a scholar of privacy and ethics law and within the framework of her new readings class, Privacy in a Post-Dobbs World. Our guest host is Kelly Kegolovits '23, a third-year student who interned this summer at the Center for Reproductive Rights in New York and has held summer positions at the ACLU of Oklahoma and Planned Parenthood South Atlantic in Raleigh, N.C. --- Listen to Duke Law Podcast: - Apple Podcasts https://bit.ly/dukelawpodcastapple - Spotify https://bit.ly/thedukelawpodcastspotify - Google Podcasts https://bit.ly/dukelawpodcastgoogle - Soundcloud: https://bit.ly/dukelawpodcastsoundcloud
