Legal History Workshop
The Legal History Workshop, presented by Professor
William Novak, features weekly presentations by leading scholars from around the country producing current and cutting-edge work in this interdisciplinary field of inquiry. The core of the workshop is the group of 15 or so seminar students taking the workshop for course credit at the Law School. But the workshop is also open to the academic community at large, and most weeks it will be attended by interested faculty from the Law School as well as faculty and graduate students from a number of other University Departments.
All sessions meet on Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in Hutchins Hall, Room 138, unless otherwise noted. Individual presentation papers are circulated one week in advance and may be obtained by contacting Marielle Toonen at email@example.com
