LAW 2752 - Colloquium on Contemporary Issues in Gender, Law, and Public Policy


This Colloquium is designed to highlight new and important scholarship concerning gender as it relates to law and public policy. The format will be a series of presentations, akin to workshops, in which outside scholars with expertise in the area of gender, law, and public policy present papers for discussion with students. In alternating weeks, in which there is not an outside speaker, the instructor(s) will meet with the students to go over the paper that is to be delivered the following week and to have further discussion of the paper that was delivered the previous week. Students will be required to write a short (two-page)reaction paper about each outside scholar’s paper. In addition, students will write a longer paper (of 10 pages or so) about one of the scholarly papers presented in the colloquium. Students who take this seminar may satisfy the Law School’s second upper class writing requirement. The primary readings for the seminar will be the presented papers. There will some additional reading to provide the students with

sufficient background on the topics addressed in the papers.
