G. Rollie White Scholar Christy E. Lopez
noon to 1:30 pm in the Francis Auditorium
Join us for a talk by Christy E. Lopez, deputy chief in the Special Litigation Section of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, on “Policing the Police: The Federal Government’s Role in Reforming Police Practices.” Lopez is a national expert on policing and one of the authors of the DOJ’s recent investigative report on Ferguson, Missouri.
Lopez's visit as a G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar is supported by a generous gift from the G. Rollie White Trust. The program brings outstanding legal scholars, practitioners and advocates from the field of public service to Texas Law to foster discussion of issues related to public interest law, to raise the profile of lawyers working in this area, and to encourage students to view public service as an honored and expected part of every legal career. Lopez is Texas Law’s fifth G. Rollie White Public Interest Scholar.

Workers' Rights in the 21st Century
This conference examines fundamental changes evolving in contemporary employment relationships. One of the pivotal legal, social, and economic evolutions of the 20th century was the advent of modern labor and employment laws that replaced the 19th century preeminence of individual “freedom of contract” and individual responsibility for wages and labor conditions. Now, however, the existing regime for ensuring workplace fairness is being fundamentally challenged by new technologies, and by shifting political attitudes about social and economic regulation.
This conference will explore the next generation of employment law issues, including changing concepts and enforcement challenges related to the very definition of an “employment” relationship; realignments in the enforcement role of courts versus private arbitration; the evolving employment rights of LGBT workers, immigrants, and guest workers; and navigating new procedural hurdles to enforcement of workplace rights.
