Faculty Speaker Series

Legal Theory Workshop
The Legal Theory Workshop Series and the Internal Speaker Series

Miami Law provides an intensely engaged laboratory for discussion of faculty works-in-progress in its Legal Theory Workshop Series and its Internal Speaker Series. We are proud to say that our Legal Theory Workshops every year feature a diverse range of distinguished scholars discussing their innovative legal scholarship over a range of important topics. Our Internal Speaker talks focus inward, on the germinating works of our own faculty colleagues. These and other elements of Miami Law’s scholarly engagements demonstrate a commitment to a rich and inclusive intellectual life.

All University of Miami faculty are invited to attend. All others should contact Alina Hernandez ahernandez@law.miami.edu to obtain a copy of the presentation paper prior to the lecture date. Due to limited student seating, students must also contact Alina Hernandez to RSVP. Come join us!
