The School of Law’s speaker exchange series invites scholars from other law schools to provide a lunchtime presentation on a recent scholarly work. Apart from the traditional lunch talk, the School of Law the speaker to participate in a separate small-group workshop with area-specific scholars from our faculty. Doing so enables the speaker to receive more precise feedback from scholars in his/her area, allows for more informal networking, and provides an informal arena for the speaker to exchange other possible scholarly ideas. School of Law speaker exchange guests are also invited to participate as a guest our podcast and join our local NPR affiliate for a radio interview discussing the speaker’s scholarly work. All faculty and staff are invited to attend the lunch talk.
