33rd Annual Jefferson B. Fordham Debate – A lively debate on the legalization of marijuana @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Oct 19 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
33rd Annual Jefferson B. Fordham Debate - A lively debate on the legalization of marijuana @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

Should marijuana be legalized in the United States? Several states have legalized the drug for non-medical purposes and other states have loosened regulations and made exceptions for its use. Advocates believe that legalization will help enhance the well-being of citizens and economic prospects of these states and reduce crime associated with illicit drug markets. Opponents argue that legalization will only lead to more dependency and usage of other drugs, a harm to young people and vulnerable citizens and increased criminal activity. Who is right?

On October 19, Paul Butler, Professor of law at Georgetown University, and Kevin Sabet, Director of the Drug Policy Institute and Assistant Professor at University of Florida College of Medicine, will debate these issues in the Moot Court room at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law. Professor Shima Baughman of the S.J. Quinney College of Law will moderate.

Frontiers in Precision Medicine II: Cancer, Big Data and the Public @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Dec 1 @ 9:00 am – Dec 2 @ 12:00 pm
Frontiers in Precision Medicine II: Cancer, Big Data and the Public @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

In his 2015 State of the Union address, President Obama announced plans for the largest genomic study in history: the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI). Then in 2016, he announced another major national initiative to accelerate cancer research and appointed Vice President Joe Biden to the helm of the Cancer Moonshot. With a cohort of one million Americans, the PMI promises to increase our understanding of the genetic basis of disease and forge the way for new diagnostic and therapeutic innovations. The technology to undertake these monumental projects exist today; however, many scientific, legal, economic, and ethical questions about the PMI and the practice of precision oncology remain unanswered. This one and a half day symposium at the University of Utah will host leading national experts in precision oncology, bioinformatics, equity, policy, and laboratory testing who are tackling the major questions raised by precision medicine, the PMI, and the Cancer Moonshot.
