Philip Hamburger

Americans like to believe that prior licensing of speech and the press came to an end in the 17th century. This was the sort of censorship that the Inquisition imposed on Galileo, that the English abandoned in 1695, and that the First Amendment most clearly prohibited. Nonetheless, the federal government has revived the licensing of speech and the press. It does this by means of committees known as "Institutional Review Boards," and although it claims that it imposes the licensing to protect Americans, it thereby licenses much academic speech and publication. Professor Hamburger will discuss this reversion to 17th century censorship and its consequences for Americans.

Professor Hamburger is the Maurice and Hilda Friedman Professor of Law at Columbia Law School. He is widely published in the area of constitutional law and its history.

Mark Kleiman

Crime control policy expert Mark A. R. Kleiman will present "How to Reduce Crime by Releasing Prisoners" as part of Cleveland-Marshall's Criminal Justice Forum.

Kleiman is a professor of public policy at the UCLA School of Public Affairs, where his current scholarly work focuses on the theory that swift, predictable punishment substituted for severity in the criminal justice system generally, and in community-corrections institutions specifically, will significantly reduce crime while decreasing the prison population.

He is the author several books, including Marijuana: Costs of Abuse, Costs of Control; and Against Excess: Drug Policy for Results.  His book, When Brute Force Fails: How to Have Less Crime and Less Punishment, was listed by The Economist as one of the "Books of the Year" for 2009. He blogs at The Reality-Based Community, at samefacts.org.

Professor Kleiman serves as an advisor to local, state, and national governments on crime control and drug policy. Before joining the UCLA faculty in1995, he taught at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and at the University of Rochester. He has also worked for the U.S. Department of Justice as director of Policy and Management Analysis for the Criminal Division.

The Littler Mendelson Employment and Labor Law Lecture presented by Professor Deborah L. Brake.

Working Hard, Hardly Working: How Misinterpretations of the Pregnancy Discrimination Act Have Undermined its Effectiveness

The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) has generally been hailed as a success story that has brought pregnant workers from an era of exclusion to an era of inclusion. However, the law has utterly failed to help women who are partially, but not fully disabled by pregnancy gain the accommodations necessary to allow them to continue to work. This lecture will explore the misunderstandings and misperceptions that have hampered the ability of the PDA to make room for pregnant women's full participation in the workplace.

Deborah L. Brake is Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Her scholarship focuses on various dimensions of equality law. She is a nationally recognized expert and author on Title IX and gender equality in sports, and on gender discrimination more broadly. Her articles have appeared in journals such as the Minnesota Law Review, William and Mary Law Review, North Carolina Law Review, and the Harvard Journal of Law & Gender.
