William and Mary Law School

Law School Hosts 5th Annual Workshop for Federal Court Scholars on Oct. 25-27

Five of the nation's top legal scholars will gather at the Law School on Oct. 25-27 to lead the Fifth Annual Junior Faculty Federal Courts Workshop. The five will serve as moderators and commentators during panels in which emerging scholars will present their works-in-progress.  The senior scholars include Curtis Bradley of Duke University Law School, John Jeffries of the University of Virginia Law School, Trevor Morrison of Columbia Law School, Linda Mullenix of the University of Texas Law School, and Mark Tushnet of Harvard Law School.  Twenty emerging scholars are expected to present their work during the three-day event.

The workshop is hosted by different law schools each year and is open to non-tenured and recently tenured law professors who teach and write in the areas of federal courts, civil procedure, civil rights, and related topics.

Professor Tara Leigh Grove has attended two prior workshops and said she was eager to have William & Mary Law School host the 2012 event, which is presented with the assistance of the Institute of Bill of Rights Law.  "The workshops are a terrific opportunity for junior scholars to meet the leading scholars in their field," she said.  "It's also a wonderful way to get to know one's 'peers' - that is, junior scholars at other institutions."
