Apologies in advance from Vegas and Phoenix
In two days I head to the US to speak, yet again, about surrogacy, this time to the world’s first international surrogacy conference in Vegas.
After that, I am off to Phoenix, where I am privileged that I have been invited by “one of the five most inspiring women in America”, Professor Sarah Buel, to lecture her students at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University about domestic violence. Professor Buel is an inspiration to me. I like her clear headed vision about domestic violence. She is a strong advocate for the law taking clear, precise and effective steps to help end domestic violence, which in the US, like Australia, is all too frequent.
It seems funny that of all the law schools in America, the one I’ll be speaking at was named after Sanda Day O’Connor, former US Supreme Court judge, whom I heard speak when I attended a lecture she gave at my alma mater QUT some years back.
A survivor of violence, Professor Buel is able to inspire amazing and extraordinary efforts by her students as to new ways of thinking about how to tackle domestic violence. Professor Buel is a renowned expert on domestic violence law.
