Colloquia & Speakers

Thomas Jefferson School of Law's vibrant scholarly community is supported by its Faculty Colloquium Committee, which is responsible for coordinating presentations by experts on diverse legal topics. The Faculty Colloquium Series serves as a platform for leading scholars to share and receive feedback on their current works-in-progress as well as a venue for new and upcoming scholars.
