An event every week that begins at 3:10pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 27, 2019
The Law and Biomedicine Colloquium brings together scholars, practitioners in our community, law students, and law faculty for seminar-style discussion of complex and controversial topics in the field. We are excited to be welcoming four distinguished scholars from other law schools in the region, as well as leaders in legal practice in law and the biosciences. Registered students at the College of Law will receive one hour of credit for participating in the colloquium; other interested participants are welcome to join us. A small reception with light refreshments will be held after each session. Visit the Center’s webpage to learn more about the Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences.
