This week we welcome our students back to campus to begin spring classes after the winter break.
And so, with the prospect of spring weather and spring energy in the air, we want to preview some of the notable events at the College of Law over the next few months.
As always, there is a lot to look forward to. We hope you'll join us when you're in the neighborhood (or when we're in yours).

Until the footnotes,


Spring Event Preview

Arizona Law will host a wide range of events and speakers throughout the spring semester. Here are just a few of the major events in our lineup.

We've tried to keep the entries brief so that you can see what jumps out at a glance, save the date, and follow the links for further information.
In addition to great standalone events, we hold occasional "Conversations With the Dean" and "Food for Thought" discussions between alumni and current students, and many speakers visit the college through our regular programs and law student organizations. 

Programs with regular speakers include the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy Program (IPLP) distinguished speaker series (see below), the Program in Criminal Law and Policy  (PCLP) Wednesday series, the Environmental Breakfast Club (see below), Bob Mundheim "Conversations With ..." leaders from the world of corporate governance (see below), and others.
Bookmark the College of Law master calendar for updates throughout the year.  We always welcome alumni and friends of the college to participate.

Sometimes I hear from members of our College of Law community that there are just too many events -- and often days where people must choose which of several interesting talks, panels, or events to attend.  I am grateful that we live in a physical desert, but an intellectual   smörgåsbord .
