The Other Front Line: COVID-19, Immigrant Workers and Public Health Consequence

Thursday, July 9, 2020
In a conversation moderated by Professor Ellie Bublick, Professors Shefali Milczarek-Desai ('01) and Tara Sklar discuss the importance of paid sick leave legislation and enforcement, along with other recommendations, to minimize COVID-19 superspreaders, reduce harsh health and economic impacts on essential workers, and safeguard America's older population.

How Our Constitutional Rights Might Inform the Planning of "New Safe Returns"

Thursday, July 16, 2020
As the nation plans "returns" to education, work and other settings pre-vaccine, tough questions arise for planners. In this conversation moderated by Assistant Dean and Law Library Director Teresa Miguel-Sterns, Professors Justin Pidot and Toni Massaro discuss areas of agreement derived from constitutional norms and doctrine that might guide planners and -- they hope -- enable all to begin from shared understandings. This does not resolve tough practical questions, to be sure. But it reminds us a unum runs below the pluribus.

Technology and Your Privacy Rights in the COVID-19 Response Era

Thursday, July 23, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has raised the stakes of current technology law and policy debates. Are we willing to tolerate more surveillance in exchange for better health outcomes? Who should get to make the speech rules for large private platforms? How, if at all, should offline rules apply to our digital worlds? Join Professors Jane Bambauer and Andrew Keane Woods for this discussion moderated by Arizona Law alumna Daisy Jenkins ('96).
This webinar will take place as part of the University of Arizona's Wonder at Home Series.
