Pro bono projects enable students to help real clients with real legal problems. Join the pro bono professionals and student leaders of our 15 projects for an information session about how each project can help you build your own credentials while helping others. Projects include Bankruptcy, Domestic Violence, Financial Literacy, Mediation, Street Law and many others. The law school recognizes those students who perform 50 hours of pro bono service during law school, and the Dean confers a special award to those who perform 100 hours. 

This event will take place in Room 207 of the law school.

Duncan Hollis, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and James. E. Beasley Professor of Law at Temple University Beasley School of Law, will present his work. 

The Rutgers-Camden Faculty Workshop series offers a collegial atmosphere in which faculty from Rutgers and distinguished guests present scholarly work and discuss contemporary legal issues. It enhances the intellectual life of the law school community and Camden campus by providing a forum for critical exchange across the disciplinary and topical boundaries that often separate scholars of the law. Attendees can earn continuing legal education (CLE) credits in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York. For more information, please contact Katie Eyer.   Faculty and staff will need to log in to see more information on the presentation.

Faculty colloquia are presented for the benefit of the Rutgers Law community and are not open to the public. If you would like to attend a particular event, please contact Katie Eyer at (katie.eyer@rutgers.edu).

More information about the series is available at https://camlaw.rutgers.edu/faculty-colloquium.

Sponsored by the Rutgers Institute for Information Policy and Law, this talk explores several cases in which governments have tried to control domestic information flows for political advantage.   China, Egypt, Denmark and the United States each implement control—through law, technology, subsidy and force—over domestic Internet space.  Using different methods and understandings of “control,” each seeks to maintain sovereignty over information flows.  Publics within these states increasingly view multifaceted efforts at information control as legitimate.  This talk will focus on the meaning of, and movement towards, information sovereignty. 

Shawn Powers (PhD, University of Southern California) is an assistant professor in the Department of Communication at Georgia State University. His research specializes in international political communication with particular attention to the geopolitics of information and technology policy. Dr. Powers is a faculty affiliate of GSU’s Transcultural Violence and Conflict initiative and co-leads its British Council and U.S. Institute of Peace funded project on Civic Approaches to Religious Conflict. He is also an associate director at the Center for International Media Education and serves on the Board of Advisors for the U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy.

This event will take place in the fourth floor faculty lounge; pizza will be served.
