Presentations & Publications

International Scholars have made valuable contributions to the law school through their many presentations; some were during an afternoon coffee hour while others were a lunch time series of talks. We encourage international scholars to collaborate with their colleagues and WCL faculty to plan a presentation during their time at the law school.
