Presenting works-in-process in a colloquial setting.

BU Law Faculty Workshops are generally held on a weekly basis during the academic year (Fall through Spring semesters). Faculty members from BU Law and from other universities are invited to present scholarly work-in-progress (usually accompanied by a pre-distributed draft of a paper) in a colloquial setting. These workshops, typically very well-attended, start with a light lunch and proceed to a full hour of presentation and discussion of the specific paper. The tradition at these workshops allocates twenty minutes to the presenter and forty minutes to questions, comments, and suggestions by various faculty members. Once a year, an outstanding scholar of national reputation is invited to give a public lecture at BU Law. The lecture is open to faculty, students, and the University community. The lecture presented by the distinguished speaker is thereafter published in the Boston University Law Review.

Unless otherwise noted, Faculty Workshops will be held in the Faculty Lounge on the 15th floor of the law tower.
