Professors Loffredo, Blaustone, Storrow and Bratspies were around the world delivering presentations on some of the nation’s hottest topics.
A widely quoted expert on the BP oil spill, Professor Rebecca Bratspies presented her paper in Oslo: “Assuming Away the Problem: Grappling with the Vexing Relationship Between International Trade and Environmental Protection.”
Professor Richard Storrow, who will be in Spain on a Fulbright this fall, was in Rome presenting at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. His talk “Normative Aspects of Cross-Border Reproductive Care” examined the impact of restrictive reproductive laws that force couples and individuals to seek medical treatment abroad and highlighted the problems associated with the exploitation of vulnerable patients and egg donors by the increasingly globalized and highly lucrative infertility industry.
Professor Beryl Blaustone, who directs CUNY Law’s Mediation Clinic, participated in a joint plenary session with Professors Catherine Klein and Leah Worthham from Catholi University School of Law at the 8th Conference of the International Journal of Clinical Legal Education at Northumbria School of Law in the UK.
Professor Steve Loffredo, who leads CUNY Law’s Economic Justice Project, delivered a series of lectures on American and comparative constitutional law at the Dipartamento di Diritto Pubblico of the University of Florence School of Law.
