Faculty Speaker Series

The Faculty Speaker Series encourages the development of new faculty scholarship by promoting collaboration with other faculty members internally and externally regarding scholarship and teaching issues. The goal of the Series is to enhance the intellectual life and development of the law school and its faculty through collegial dialogue about pressing issues of concern to law professors and others including alumni and students. The Series invites outstanding scholars from around the country to present works-in-progress and features many of Texas Wesleyan's own faculty members presenting works-in-progress. For non-tenured faculty members, a Junior Faculty Workshop is coordinated separately and it allows non-tenured faculty members to collaborate and discuss their works-in-progress amongst themselves. All presentations are held Wednesdays at noon, unless indicated otherwise.
