The Colloquium on Courts and the Legal Process brings together judges, scholars, and students to discuss current research about courts and judging. At a typical workshop, an invited scholar will present work in progress; and a judge of a federal, state, or foreign court will offer commentary on the research. Faculty and students will participate in the open discussion that follows. Students will be expected to prepare written critiques and questions for the speakers, whose topics and research methods will range widely.
Enrollment is by permission of the instructor. Given the nature of the course, enrollment will be quite limited. Applications will be accepted starting in December; more details about how to apply will be posted then.
The course is 1 credit and meets every other week. It is expected to meet 6 times, including 3 times with guest speakers.
NOTE: Grading is Credit/Fail (CR/F).
