University of Oxford professor Jonathan Herring will present a lecture - "Entering the Fog: On the Borderlines of Mental Capacity" - for the public Sept. 12 at noon in the Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington moot court room.

Herring is on campus as Indiana Law's George P. Smith II Distinguished Visiting Professor-Chair through Sept. 15.

He has authored leading texts in family and medical law, and his research in these areas covers hot-button topics including the regulation of pregnancy and enforced medical treatment; the medical and legal definition of sex; issues surrounding human cloning; and the intersections of family law and human rights. His criminal-law work focuses on mistaken consent to sexual relations, crimes against corpses, and failures of parents to protect children from death.

The visiting professor served as a fellow in law and director of studies at New Hall, University of Cambridge, and a lecturer in law at Christ Church, University of Oxford. He is currently a fellow in law at Oxford's Exeter College where he has been since 1999.

The George P. Smith II Distinguished Visiting Professorship-Chair was inaugurated in 1998 by Justice Michael D. Kirby of the High Court of Australia. It brings international leaders in the legal profession to the law school for lectures, research, and student exchanges.

Past holders of this professorship include Sir David Williams, University of Cambridge; professor Margaret Somerville, McGill University; professor Tzu-Yi Lin, National Taiwan University; professor Janet McLean, University of Auckland; professor Ivan Shearer, University of Melbourne; and professor Cheryl Saunders, University of Melbourne.

  1. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  2. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  4. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!

  5. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?
