Lectures and Visitors
Even as we find new ways to connect via technology, we believe our students and alums benefit from listening to engaging speakers and interacting with them on a personal basis. To learn face to face from some of the most distinguished legal minds in the country.
Whether it is to expand your classroom knowledge or to fulfill your continuing legal education requirements, we provide innumerable opportunities for students and alums to come together to learn and to explore differing points of view.
