Spring 2013 LAPA Seminar Series
Mondays at 4:30 PM
Funded by the Bouton Law Lecture Fund
LAPA’s seminar format assumes that seminar participants have familiarized themselves with the paper in advance. The commentator opens the session by summarizing the main themes in the paper and presenting some topics for discussion. The author then has the right of first response before we open to the floor for questions. The seminar will end with a brief reception, giving everyone a chance to mingle and meet.
