The Faculty Colloquia

Syracuse University College of Law presents the Faculty Colloquia, convening leading scholars from the College and other institutions. Addressing subjects from executive orders and government agencies to humanitarian law and medical patents, these workshops aim to broaden the horizons of legal scholarship, facilitate the sharing of ideas, and challenge how we think about the law and legal practice.
