Demonstrating a commitment to scholarly engagement, Georgia Law hosts a colloquium series through which some of the nation's top legal academics present substantial works in progress to the law school faculty. The guest speakers, both rising younger commentators and established senior ones, reflect the law school's growing reputation in academic circles.
The series provides a forum for provocative and innovative legal scholarship and gives Georgia Law faculty the opportunity to collaborate on works in progress, exchange ideas and foster relationships with other institutions.
This program is made possible through the Kirbo Trust Endowed Faculty Enhancement Fund and the Talmadge Law Faculty Fund.
