MU Law School hosts a number of scholarly activities for faculty and students. The Faculty Colloquium series brings well-regarded academics from all over the world to give scholarly presentations on a wide variety of subjects to the faculty. The series includes a speaker exchange workshop, which allows our faculty to travel to participating schools and present their work. Our internal faculty workshops provide an opportunity for our faculty to present their works-in-progress to their peers prior to publication. Additionally, we host a number of symposia and conferences throughout the year that bring together academics, students, and practitioners to explore cutting edge legal topics.
