Faculty speaker events are divided into two categories: the Legal Theory Workshop Series and the Internal Speaker Series.
The Legal Theory Workshop Series brings distinguished faculty from law schools throughout the United States and abroad. The Internal Speaker Series features our own faculty members who present works in progress and benefit from attendee feedback.
