Brown Bag Series

Developing a high-quality LL.M. program entails looking  beyond the classroom. We offer bi-weekly “brown bag” (bring your own lunch) meetings with our students, featuring faculty and staff with specialties of particular interest to our students. These sessions cover a variety of topics, including job search preparation, optional practical training, exam preparation, and U.S. culture and traditions, to name a few. To make sure that they can hear from as many professors about as many topics as possible, we invite our faculty to give talks as a part of this series.

FALL 2015

All sessions start at 12:10 pm. 

Food is not provided unless noted otherwise. Feel free to bring your lunch/snack and eat during the session.

Schedule may change, and additional programs may be added at a later date
