Law School Faculty Workshops
Please attend the Faculty Workshops organized by Professor Mulligan. If you are not already on the e-mail distribution list for announcements about these Workshops, then please contact Professor Mulligan (email@example.com) to get on that list.
The presenters are Professors from various American law schools. They are presenting articles, book chapters, or books, which works-in-progress, soon-to-be-published, or have been published recently.
These Workshops will give you a sense of legal research as it is done in the United States, and how to defend a piece in a public setting. In effect, the Workshops are a microcosm of your dissertation defense.
Lunch is served at the Workshops (no charge, but please RSVP as per the e-mail announcements).
You are encouraged to ask questions.
