Spring Event Preview

What follows is a partial listing of the many exciting events and speakers that Arizona Law will host during the spring semester. 

We've kept the entries brief so that you can see everything at a glance, save the date, and follow the links for further information.

The offerings include a number of great standalone events along with regular speaker series organized by faculty, staff, and law student organizations. Topics span technology, corporate law, Indigenous peoples' law, environmental law, criminal law, constitutional law, and many other areas.

The lineup also includes two very special events for the college community, the Annual Scholarship Luncheon on February 28 and the 2020 LCA Awards Celebration on March 6.

In the News

(As part of the activities of ENID IIJ, we share photos from the first class of Dr. Francisco José Paoli Bolio, in the Diploma of Mexican Law at @uarizona.)

I often note that, for our students, it is hard to find a weekday without a choice of pizza, burritos, or sandwiches -- always with a healthy serving of intellectually filling ideas, talks, and debates.
Should you visit our college, you are welcome to join those daily events. We hope that highlighting some of our high-profile and community-facing events will tempt you to plan some time with us.
And of course we want to involve our alumni and friends in celebratory events such as the Annual LCA Awards Celebration (on March 6).
