    ALDF Monday Coffee

    Welcome back to school! The Animal Legal Defense Fund Student Chapter at Texas Law would like to invite everyone to our coffee table and share recent animal law updates. This week, we’d like to talk about the “Ending Agricutural Trade Suppression Act,” a bill recently introduced in Congress. The EATS Act poses a grave threat to states’ rights, local government, public health and safety, consumer protection, workers’ rights, environmental protection, and animals. We’d like to also encourage people to sign onto a letter calling members of Congress to oppose the inclusion of the EATS Act in the Farm Bill. Vegan coffee and pastry will be provided.

    Reproductive Justice Colloquium Series

    Join us for our first Fall 2023 Rapoport Center Reproductive Justice Colloquium Event, presented by Rachel Rebouche, Dean and the James E. Beasley Professor of Law, Temple University Beasley School of Law. Kari White, Associate Professor at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work, will respond.

    Abstract: Antiabortion activists attempt to stop medication abortion by any means necessary, including through criminalization. They aim to redefine abortion’s location to criminalize abortion travel, information, and supply chain bans, and even to revive the long-unenforced and arguably repealed Comstock Act’s ban on mailing anything that induces an abortion. Some even attempt to target directly those who take abortion pills. This talk considers the reproductive justice implications for some of these efforts, with a focus on the ways in which attempts to punish people who provide or use pills will exacerbate the public health and criminal justice consequences that new abortion bans have wrought, entrenching existing class and race differences. It encourages abortion rights advocates to keep these implications at the fore of their own efforts to increase access to abortion pills through federal and state advocacy, including through FDA regulation, state abortion shield laws that protect cross-border telehealth, and pharmacist prescriptions of abortion pills.

    Generative A.I. by Knobb

    Mauricio Uribe (a Partner at Knobbe Martens) will be giving a presentation about Generative A.I. and its potential uses/misuses.

    Over the past six months, the public availability and widespread use of various generative artificial intelligence (Generative AI) AI solutions, such as Chat GPT Dall-E-2, Co-Pilot, etc., has presented numerous legal, technical and ethical considerations across most every industry and geography region. Given the potential for widespread use, it is important for organizations to understand key issues and best practices surrounding use of Generative AI solutions in developing policies and assessing legal, technical and business strategies related to Generative AI. Specifically, what does it mean when a company’s employees use these powerful tools in their daily work? Come learn how these tools are being used/misused and IP and business risks for using AI-based tools. Using Open AI’s current terms of service as a case study, our discussion will include a review of the availability of trade secret, copyright and patent protection based on outputs generated by Generative AI services and how to formulate workable policies in the workplace.
