THE 2013 RANDOLPH W. THROWER SYMPOSIUM

PRIVATIZATION:
MANAGING LIABILITY AND REASSESSING PRACTICES
IN LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL CONTEXTS

 

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 2013

EMORY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW
1301 CLIFTON ROAD
ATLANTA, GEORGIA

 

The Randolph W. Thrower Symposium is part of an endowed lecture series sponsored by Mr. Thrower's family and hosted by the Emory Law Journal and Emory University School of Law.

The Honorable Alex Kozinski, Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, will deliver the keynote speech.

In recent years, the government has increasingly contracted out public functions and services to private parties. Prompted in part by government budget cuts, key Supreme Court decisions, and American involvement in conflicts abroad, private parties play an increasingly critical role in the government. Expanding on previous discussions of privatization, the symposium will focus on certain aspects of privatization that have evolved in recent years. Underlying questions include whether the changed economy makes privatization more critical, how privatization has changed legal liability, how previous legal practices should be reassessed, and whether certain public functions should not be delegated despite increased efficiency. To that end, the 2013 Randolph W. Thrower Symposium presented by the Emory Law Journal will bring together leading scholars and practitioners to advance the discussion of privatization as it relates to modern liability and practices.
