What: Do you find yourself losing track of how you’re spending your time? Do you sometimes face indecision or anxiety when it comes to defining which task should get your attention? As master’s students, sometimes the hardest part of your graduate school experience isn’t managing your course content, but rather managing all of your myriad obligations in a relatively short span of time. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the underlying causes of procrastination and how to overcome them so that you can focus on efficiency and productivity. You’ll also come away with concrete strategies that will aid in determining which of your competing priorities should come first in a given moment and establishing a schedule that will actually help you achieve balance. Please RSVP! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/managing-academic-and-professional-priorities-tickets-58102336653

What: Technology is making it easier than ever to successfully “hang your own (virtual) shingle” after law school. The digital economy has created a more welcoming environment for new lawyers starting their own practice on a shoestring budget. For many clients, a physical office is no longer a prerequisite to get them “in the door.” Learn how to prepare for practice while in law school, keep costs low, avoid pitfalls, maintain a successful website, attract clients through blogging and social media, choose the right clients, choose areas of practice friendly to solo practitioners, take advantage of fee-shifting statutes to serve populations in need, further access to justice, and be your own boss.

7) The Pathologies of Digital Consent
(top)
When: Wednesday, March 20, 2019 from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM
Where: Room 204
What: Consent permeates our law, and our digital lives. Consent is the foundation of the relationships we have with search engines, social networks, commercial web sites, and any one of the dozens of other digitally-mediated businesses we interact with regularly. We frequently are asked to consent to terms of service, privacy notices, the use of cookies, and so many other commercial practices. But it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. As a number of scholars have documented, while consent models permeate the digital consumer landscape, the practical conditions of these agreements fall far short of the gold standard of knowing and voluntary consent. Yet as scholars, advocates, and consumers, we lack a common vocabulary for talking about the different ways in which digital consents can be flawed. In this Cyber Alliance talk, Washington University in St. Louis Prof. Neil Richards will discuss his work-in-progress with Professor Woodrow Hartzog of Northeastern University. Their forthcoming paper, “the Pathologies of Digital Consent,” tries to make four contributions to how we think about consent in the digital world. First, it offers a conceptual framework for thinking about when consent is valid and when it has defects, and a conceptual vocabulary for talking about different kinds of defects or pathologies that consent models can suffer. Second, it offers a way of thinking about when consent is most valid when we are asked to choose infrequently, when the potential harms that result from the consent are easy to imagine, and where we have the correct incentives to consent consciously and seriously. The further we fall from this gold standard, the more a particular consent is pathological and thus suspect. Third, the theory of consent pathologies complicates the “privacy paradox” – the idea that consumer anxiety about privacy is undermined by the fact that consumers act in privacy-diminishing ways in practice. Understanding the “privacy paradox” in terms of consent pathologies shows how consumers aren’t hypocrites who say one thing but do another. On the contrary, the pathologies of consent show how consumers can be nudged and manipulated by powerful companies against their actual interests, and that this process is easier when consumer protection law far from the gold standard. Professor Richards will also offer an alternative to our over-reliance on consent, which is the theory of consumer trust that is starting to gain traction as Congress debates a federal privacy law. There will be time for casual conversation and light refreshments before and after the presentation. Please RSVP to tgabs@bu.edu. *Please note change of location*

(top)
When: Thursday, March 28, 2019 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Where: Charles River Room (5th Floor); Barrister's Hall (Reception)
What: This event will bring together leading women corporate counsel of color and law students from BU Law and all Boston area law schools. Through this event, we seek to bring to the forefront the experiences, challenges, and guidance of women of color for the next generation of rising attorneys of color seeking excellence. During law school, students of color recognize that there is a deficit of knowledge for women law students of color in understanding and envisioning oneself in inside counsel opportunities, which are quickly becoming much more prevalent and available as a career path. Simply put, students of color often do not feel they share the systemic knowledge or information to pursue this corporate path. Often the lack of knowledge is connected to the lack of an existing narrative that could be instrumental in their professional, academic, financial and social growth. We hope that, through these leaders’ narratives, students can start to weave together the tangible experiences of women corporate counsel of color to provide guidance, resources, and mentorship opportunities to students interested in excelling in the corporate counsel field. This event should become a legacy conversation to boost interest, confidence and access for women of color. Please contact Stella Oyalabu (soyalabu@bu.edu) or Cecily Banks (cbanks@bu.edu) for more information.
