Activities and Scholarship

Steph Tai presented "Greener, Fairer Foods: Consumer Demand and Eco/Fairness Labels" at the Wisconsin Festival of Ideas in April.

Stacy Taeuber submitted an amicus brief to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in State v. Shata, and in April, she participated in oral argument before the court. State v. Shata and its companion case, State v. Ortiz-Mondragon, are the first cases in Wisconsin to interpret the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Padilla v. Kentucky, which held that defense counsel is constitutionally obligated to advise noncitizen defendants of the immigration consequences of any plea. Immigrant Justice Clinic students Caitlin Fish, Loredana Valtierra, Aissa Olivarez, and Chris Russell helped Taeuber prepare the brief.

David Schwartz presented his paper, "Misreading McCulloch v. Maryland," at the American Bar Foundation's Chicago Legal History Workshop in April.

Mitra Sharafi was guest commentator at the 2015 Race, Law & History Pro-Seminar, hosted by Rebecca Scott and Martha Jones at the University of Michigan Law School in April. The workshop is held annually for fellows in the school's Race, Law & History Program.
