Distinguished Speaker Series

From formal presentations, informal brown bag lunches, and faculty/student activities, the events hosted through the McGeorge School of Law Distinguished Speaker Series provide an ideal forum for the exchange of ideas for the betterment of law faculty as colleagues working together, as scholars from law schools across the nation and world sharing abstracts of in-progress research, and as teachers who can share a wellspring of emerging ideas and perspectives in the classroom.
