Faculty Workshops

The UConn School of Law faculty workshop series provides a weekly forum for the presentation of legal scholarship and fosters academic discussion among colleagues and peers. UConn faculty and scholars from around the world present papers --typically works in progress-- and the faculty attendees are given the opportunity to ask questions and provide comments. The workshops are an important focal point for the intellectual life of the school, providing an opportunity for the UConn Law community to meet leading scholars from other institutions.

The UConn Law faculty workshops series reserves a limited number of seats for UConn Law students. Student attendance is by registration only, and the availability of seats is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Interested J.D. or LL.M. students should email deborah.king@uconn.edu to reserve a seat based on availability. Students must sign up no later than the Monday before the workshop in order to confirm seat availability. 

Typically, faculty workshops are held on Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Janet M. Blumberg Hall.
