Interdisciplinary and Law: Seminar Series (October - December 2013)

In 2013 the law school will be hosting a seminar series on interdisciplinary research in which we aim to explore what interdisciplinary research means for law as a 'discipline' and consider the limits (if any) of this type of scholarship. Each session will be led by a staff member at NULS and will include discussion of canonical texts, research methods and exercises. Please contact Dr. Patrick O'Callaghan if you would like to attend any of these workshops. All seminars will take place at 2pm in the staff common room unless otherwise indicated.
