  • Professor Lisa Benjamin Lunch & Learn: Environmental Justice and COVID-19

    12:00pm - 1:00pm

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: Environmental Justice and Covid-19

    Covid-19 has had devastating effects on communities of color and low income communities. Environmental justice highlights the disproportionate burden of environmental harms which are imposed on low income communities and communities of color. We will look at how these harms are directly related to underlying health conditions, which in turn make these communities more vulnerable to Covid-19.

    Presenter: Professor Lisa Benjamin

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.

  • Juliet Stumpf Lunch & Learn: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    12:00pm - 1:00pm

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: Family Separation in a Time of COVID: Crimmigration, Consent, and the Othering of Central American Mothers

    In 2018, President Trump announced that family separation was over (or did he?). Professor Stumpf will address two current issues of separation and prolonged detention of noncitizen children: first, the indefinite detention of teens separated from their families and detained indefinitely in our backyard in two facilities in Oregon and Washington, and second, ICE’s strategy for circumventing a court order limiting the detention of children through consensual separation of largely Central American mothers from their children. The session will address the impact of COVID, and explore the racialized and gendered context behind family separation.

    Presenter: Professor Juliet Stumpf

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.

  • Professor Robert Klonoff Lunch & Learn: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    12:00pm - 1:00pm

    Lunch & Learn: A Series Presented by L&C Faculty

    Topic: COVID-19 and the Flood of Civil Litigation: An Assessment

    Rarely, if ever, has a single event caused so much litigation, of such a wide variety, so quickly. In only months, thousands of individual and class action lawsuits have been filed against prisons, hospitals, airlines, cruise lines, gyms, government entities, universities, and many other kinds of defendants. The claims have sought damages and orders to halt the allegedly improper conduct. My talk will survey this litigation and discuss some of the unique legal issues raised by this litigation. It will also discuss legislative responses, including proposals to immunize various categories of defendants from civil liability.

    Presenter: Professor Robert Klonoff

    Note: This event is open only to Lewis & Clark Law School faculty, staff, and students.
