The War on Kids: Progress and the Path Forward on Juvenile Justice"
MARCH 2 – Cara H. Drinan,
Tuesday, March 2, 2021, 1 pm (EST) (DC), 7 pm GMT+1 (Poland)
Professor Drinan will draw on her Oxford University Press book, The War on Kids: How American Juvenile Justice Lost Its Way, to talk about how the US invented the juvenile court model at the end of the 19th Century, exported it globally, and then abandoned it domestically to become the most punitive nation in the world regarding justice-involved youth. She then will focus on new directions in which the US could and should go.

MARCH 24 – Gaspar Kot, "Sustainable Investment – The New Heart of EU Financial Market Regulation"
Wednesday, March 24, 2021, 2 pm (EDT) (DC), 7 pm GMT+1 (Poland)
With increasing concern for global climate change and following the 2015 Paris Agreement obligations, the European Union adopted the Regulation on Sustainability-Related Disclosures in the Financial Services Sector (SFDR), which will take effect beginning March 10, 2021. The SFDR, along with draft regulatory technical standards and the EU’s Taxonomy Regulation, require from financial market participants to incorporate sustainability considerations in their governance frameworks as well as the preparation of disclosures and reporting to investors about environmental, social, and governance factors. The EU sustainable investment regime reaches US entities offering investment funds and financial services to European clients. The EU General Data Protection Regulation sent shock waves across the Atlantic and required many US lawyers and businesses to quickly become expert in GDPR requirements. The EU’s ESG requirements are likely to have a similar dramatic border-crossing impact.
