The Public Law Workshop is a year-long workshop intended to expose students to current scholarship in the public law area and offer students an opportunity to learn more generally about the scholarly enterprise. The workshop thus may be especially valuable to students who are interested in academic careers. In the fall the focus will be on constitutional law and administrative law, and in the spring on issues in law and politics. Students may take the workshop only the fall or the spring, but are encouraged to take the workshop for the full year. Each semester is worth two credits.
The workshop is structured around presentations of working papers by leading public law scholars. Two sessions are devoted to each paper. In the first, students read each speaker's paper and prior scholarship on the topic. In the second, the speaker will present the paper and students are expected to attend and participate in the discussion. Faculty will also attend the paper presentations. Permission of the instructor is required for admission to the course.
