Expand Your Mind: Lecture Series & Events at the Law Tower
Though we know that your coursework is top priority while you are studying here, there are a number of wonderful opportunities at BU Law to let your mind engage in intellectual pursuits outside of or in tandem with those explored in your courses. Live Well, Learn Well encourages students to nurture topics of interest and engage in discussion with both members and guests of our community.
Brown Bag Lunch Lecture Series
Dean Marx and the Office of Student Affairs sponsor a regular lunchtime lecture series which features faculty and alumni speakers addressing a broad variety of topics ranging from the latest faculty research to current events of relevance to the legal community. Recent topics have included the constitutionality of teaching intelligent design in schools; the military’s policy on gays and lesbians in the military; civil liberties and public health issues raised by Hurricane Katrina; and legal operations in Iraq. Keep an eye out for flyers advertising these regular talks.
CRS Forum Lecture Series
The CRS Forum, a new series launched in Spring 2011, was designed to pay tribute to the founders of Boston University and their legacy of creating an academic environment open to all students, regardless of race, gender, class, nationality, religion and sexuality. The series' title honors the founders of BU Law, Isaac Rich, Lee Clafin and Jacob Sleep, who founded BU Law in 1872 upon the crucial principle that any applicant of ability would be admitted to study. The CRS Forum is a place for our community to celebrate, acknowledge and discuss diversity throughout the academic year. The CRS Forum sponsors and co-sponsors events on a regular basis, so be sure to look out for flyers and announcements in the Tower. Learn more about the development of the Forum here on the Student Affairs blog.
