After graduating from USC Law School in 1968, Kamins became a Deputy Public Defender and served as deputy in charge for the LA Juvenile Hall Court. He then was appointed to the Los Angeles Municipal Court by George Deukmejian in 1985 and was appointed to the Los Angeles Superior Court the following year. Kamins spent all but one year of his judicial career presiding over criminal cases and briefly presided over the widely publicized Rodney King beating case in 1991. From 2000 to 2007, Kamins ran Drug Court for the entire western portion of LA County. Though formally retired, Kamins currently serves as a judge at the Van Nuys Courthouse in the assigned judge program and is working on creating a prostitution diversion program for the local court. Kamins holds a B.A. in Sociology from UC Santa Barbara and a J.D. from the University of Southern California. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Law at Pepperdine University’s law school.

As part of the Medical Humanities, Arts, and Ethics Series, which engages core health issues in society today, we will present an afternoon with essayist and physician Danielle Ofri. Renowned for her use of dramatic stories, Ofri will explore how emotions permeate clinical decisions and provoke physicians, despite their commitment to the scientific method, to act in ways that are not nearly as rational and evidence-based as they may think.

Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, an associate professor of medicine at New York University School of Medicine, has her clinical home at Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in the country. She writes about medicine and the patient-physician relationship for the New York Times and is the founder and editor in chief of the Bellevue Literary Review, the first literary journal to arise from a medical setting. Ofri is the recipient of the John P. McGovern Award from the American Medical Writers Association for “preeminent contributions to medical communication.”

Organized by Pamela Schaff (Pediatrics and Family Medicine), Lyn Boyd-Judson (Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics), and Alexander Capron (Law and Medicine).

Co-sponsored by the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics, Keck School of Medicine’s Program in Medical Humanities, Arts, and Ethics, and the USC Pacific Center for Health Policy and Ethics.
