On-Campus/Local CLE Programs

Criminalizing Care
Tuesday, March 10, 2020
UT College of Law, Room 135
5 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Professor Wendy Bach will present the findings in her forthcoming book, Criminalizing Care, which focuses on the prosecution of 120 women in Tennessee for the crime of “fetal assault.” Although those who supported Tennessee’s enactment of the fetal assault law promised that it would provide a road to care for women as well as children, the promise to those women proved largely false. There is no evidence that the vast majority of women received care as part of their prosecutions, and those who did paid a significant price for that care in the form of time in jail and hefty fines and fees. In addition, these prosecutions are part of a larger phenomenon of what the book terms Criminalizing Care, in which care is linked with punishment in ways that degrade the form of care people receive. 

The CLE will also focus on issues of compliance with Rule of Professional Conduct 1.3, the duty of competence that were evident in some of the qualitative data from the study.

This CLE offers 1.5 hours of dual credit and is $20. To register, send your BPR number and contact information, including e-mail, to MFox2@utk.edu and include the name of the CLE program for which you are registering.

There are no on-campus CLE events currently scheduled for the next several weeks. Please check back as information is regularly updated.
