At UC Irvine we have the opportunity to create from the ground up what we hope will eventually be a top-ranked law school. How can the law school be organized to anticipate and mold the future of law and legal education? What are vanguard approaches to legal practices, pedagogy, theory, and scholarship that should be taken into account? What specializations should the law school fill or create? How can the law school be integrated with the broader campus and help foster interdisciplinary research? What is the responsibility of a law school at a public university to the community at large? What opportunities should we exploit? What pitfalls should we avoid?Co-sponsored by the School of Social Ecology, School of Social Sciences, School of Humanities, Department of Criminology, Law and Society, Department of English, and the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Planning.
