Miami Law is proud to announce the 2020-2021 Legal Theory Workshop Series’ line-up of distinguished legal scholars. The first workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, September 23rd with Professor Catherine Fisk of the University of California’s Berkeley Law, who will be discussing her work “Protection by Law, Repression by Law: Bringing Labor Back Into the Study of Law and Social Movement Studies.”
