A summary of writing, presentations, and media mentions from June-August 2018
Margo A. Bagley, Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law, is the recipient of an Emory Global Health Institute 2018 Seed Grant Program. Awardees receive up to $50,000 to conduct preliminary research on a global health challenge, with the goal of securing additional funding from external sources to expand the research conducted during this initial pilot phase. Her project title is “Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance Pilot Program-Mozambique,” and her co-investigator is Deborah McFarland, professor of global health at the Rollins School of Public Health.

Bagley also served as expert advisor to the Government of Mozambique, and friend of the chair during the 36th Session of the World Intellectual Property Organization Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property, Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge, and Folklore, held in Geneva, Switzerland, in June 2018.
Laurie Blank, clinical professor of law and director of the International Humanitarian Law Clinic, has been tapped to lead Emory Law’s Center for International and Comparative Law. She replaces Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na’im, who has directed the center since its founding in 2008. Read more.
Rafael Domingo, Spruill Family Research Professor and Francisco de Vitoria Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of Law and Religion, will serve as visiting professor at Strathmore University in Nairobi, Kenya.
Martha Albertson Fineman was again named the most-cited US faculty member in the category of family law, in the annual survey compiled by Professor Gregory Sisk and colleagues. The survey was released in late September, and their data shows Fineman was cited 515 times between 2013 and 2017. Read more.
Jonathan R. Nash, Robert Howell Hall Chair in Law, has assumed the role of director of the Emory University Center for Law and Social Science. The center (originally the Center for the Study of Law, Politics & Economics) hosts interdisciplinary conferences and speakers, and fosters interdisciplinary initiatives between the School of Law and Emory College social science departments. Read more.
Polly J. Price has signed a book deal with Beacon Press to publish her upcoming book, Plagues in the Nation: How Epidemics Shaped America. The premise? “The history of epidemics in the US shows that disease control is a matter of effective law and governance, not just good science. By looking at the governmental response to epidemics in our past, we can learn how to place the US on a better footing for the future,” she says.
Emory University School of Law and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have partnered to launch Community Legal Clinic, an organization handling immigration issues at no cost. Rita Sheffey, assistant dean for public service and director of the Center for Public Service, says organizers hope to add family law soon and, eventually, other legal specialties. She’s leading the effort for the school. The monthly clinic currently offers free, brief, personalized advice about immigration, in a safe setting. Read more.
