Data is potential. Datasets are routinely reused and repurposed, combined with other datasets, or fed into machine learning models to yield new inferences or discoveries. Precisely what a given dataset will yield is uncertain: the value—or harm—that a single dataset could produce is difficult, if not impossible, to fully forecast in advance. In health, the routine of reusing and repurposing health-related data is foundational to advancing medical knowledge.
Alvin Y.H. Cheung of the N.Y.U. School of Law will discuss the origins, evolution, and future direction of the ongoing protest movement in Hong Kong, assessing the legal and political significance of the protests and what they mean for the future of “one country, two systems” in the People's Republic of China. Mr. Cheung is a Hong Kong barrister (non-practicing) who has written and presented extensively about developments in Hong Kong for academic, specialist, and lay audiences.
Professor Mathilde Cohen will be speaking about her forthcoming article in the Yale Journal of Law & Feminism, The Law of Placenta.
Do you want to get involved this semester with real work in the New Haven community? Come to the Temporary Restraining Order Project information session Tuesday, September 10 from 12:10-1:00pm in Baker 116. There will be non-pizza lunch!
The TRO Project staffs an office at the New Haven Courthouse every weekday starting in October. Law students volunteer to help clients fill out their restraining order applications, which involves a surprisingly complicated set of forms. Don't worry if you know nothing about restraining orders -- we will train you!
The Haven MLP is a partnership with HAVEN, a free clinic operated by Yale medical students every Saturday for uninsured patients, the great majority of whom are also undocumented immigrants. Law student volunteers work onsite at the clinic and meet directly with patients to conduct legal screening and identify issues that should be referred to NHLAA for possible legal representation. Common legal issues include immigration, wage theft, landlord/tenant concerns, and domestic violence.
We will have many of our editors and board members to talk about their experiences with YJoLT and TechSoc as well as tech law at YLS in general. Dinner will be served and an optional happy hour will follow for us to mingle and get to know each other better.
