Intoxication Culture and Personal Responsibility in Japan

Mark D. West, Dean and Nippon Life Professor of Law, Michigan Law School
Date and discussant to be announced on https://jls.law.columbia.edu/content/events

Dean West, a well-known authority on Japanese law and a leader in Japanese legal studies, will discuss the findings of his new book, which provides a rich description of Japanese alcohol consumption, drinking culture, and intoxication based on a unique dataset: thousands of published Japanese court opinions. The opinions illuminate legal concepts of individual responsibility to society and in doing so, what, where, and why people drink in Japan, and the weight given by courts to social status (occupation, wealth, gender and education).

Nuclear Weapons And International Law 2020 (Webinar)

Monday, November 12, 2020, 9 AM—7 PM
Register: https://nysba.org/events/nuclear-weapons-and-international-law-2020-webinar/

This conference will bring together thought-leaders, policy-makers, and experts—from the UN, other domestic and international governmental agencies, think-tanks, NGOs, and academia—for a comprehensive examination of this still grave but often overlooked subject. The program includes panels on the present facts and policies about nuclear weapons, international law, including present and proposed treaties, the role of the UN and other organizations, and how to both increase public awareness of the continued threat of nuclear weapon and create new, more stable international norms of conduct and policy.
