Faculty Speaker Series 

Faculty Speaker Series

The Faculty Speaker Series invites scholars doing important, interesting research to present their projects to the Law School faculty and interested students.  The scholars are either Law School faculty or faculty from other law schools or universities, and the research includes legal issues, interdisciplinary areas, and pedagogy. The goal of the Series is to enhance the intellectual life of the law school, by providing a venue for dialogue among Law School faculty members and between our faculty and outside scholars. This dialogue is key to maintaining a vibrant environment at the Law School for scholarly discussion, including discussions about how to apply research and influence critical areas of law and society.
