Graduate Works-in-Progress Symposium April 9-10

The Graduate Programs at Yale Law School will hold its Works-in-Progress Symposium on Friday, April 9, and Saturday, April 10, at Yale Law School. The symposium is an annual spring event featuring papers by current Yale Law School graduate students, critiqued by members of the Law School faculty. The entire Yale Law School community is welcome to attend. Most symposium events will take place in Room 128.

The symposium is a part of the Law School’s commitment to providing numerous opportunities for intellectual engagement between students and the faculty. Every year, LL.M. (Master of Laws) and J.S.D. (Doctor of the Science of Law) candidates tackle a wide range of topics, underscoring the diverse research interests of the graduate students, many of whom already hold faculty positions in the U.S. and abroad.

As part of the program, a roundtable discussion on the subject of “Twists and Turns: Choices on the Path to Law Teaching,” co-sponsored with the Program on Law Teaching, will be held in Room 129 on Friday, April 9, from 12:05 to 1:00 p.m. Participating are Yale Law Professors Douglas Kysar and Nicholas R. Parrillo ’04. Lunch will be served. Please pre-register for this panel by contacting
