On April 9, 2014, C|M|LAW’s Leon and Gloria Plevin Professor of Law Browne Lewis presented a lecture at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.  The lecture dealt with the of impact reproductive technology on legal parentage.  Professor Lewis discussed the factors courts consider when determining the legal mother of a child conceived as the result of a surrogacy arrangement.  She also explained the manner in which the court adjudicates the paternity of a man whose wife is artificially inseminated with donor sperm and with an anonymous sperm donor.  Lastly, she analyzed the public health consequences of creating designer children using reproductive technology.

In addition, Professor Lewis was recently elected to the AALS Women in Legal Education Archives Subcommittee.  This Committee is charged with reviewing the contents of the current archives; creating a mechanism to share the archival information with our members; adding oral histories and other additional data to the archives; and maintaining the Schlesinger Archives.
