Space Still Available in These Spring 2014 Seminars!


There are still spots available in the following seminars taught by Professor Wendy Gordon. Interested students can register on the Student Link or stop by the Registrar's Office.

Intellectual Property Workshop (S)
LAW JD776 A1
Mondays 10:40am-12:40pm

The Seminar that brings Intellectual Property speakers to the law school, and trains its participants in scholarly writing, is no longer closed.  Check out the website on Blackboard Learn to see if you are interested.
Students who are not enrolled are nevertheless invited to the workshop whenever presenters are giving talks, but only the enrolled students will participate in the prep sessions and receive ongoing comments on their own writing.

Law, Language & Literature (S)
LAW JD929 A1
Wednesdays 10:40am-12:40pm

The seminar in Law, Language and Literature by Professors Gordon (Warren Professor of Law) and Ricks (Warren Professor of the Humanities) is filling up with mostly students from outside the law school.  That means that law students are missing out on a rare opportunity to work with Christopher Ricks, for whom this is a rare law school appearance. Professor Ricks is T. S. Eliot's editor, has held the poetry chair at Oxford,  is fascinated by Bob Dylan and has written a book about him, and writes amazingly witty reviews (and he's pretty witty in class). Most importantly, the class is about slowing down when you read, and learning to write with precision and calculated effect.  Those are lawyerly skills, as well as human ones.  A few seats are left, and law students are encouraged to think about taking the seminar. Check out the website on Blackboard Learn to see if you are interested. JD 929 A1 (cross-listed with  BU's Editorial Institute as  EI506)
