The Visiting Speaker Series is designed to stimulate ideas for new faculty scholarship, promote collaboration with other legal faculties, and to enhance the intellectual life of the law school. The Series invites outstanding scholars from around the country to present works in progress.
Southwestern welcomes its alumni and scholars from other institutions of higher learning to participate as part of the interactive audience free of charge.
In addition, the Faculty Colloquium, held periodically on campus, features Southwestern faculty members presenting works-in-progress.
All lectures will be held at 12:30 p.m. in BW370,
