Grad Programs Aspiring Scholars Symposium April 17-18

The Graduate Programs at Yale Law School will hold its Aspiring Scholars Symposium on Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18, at Yale Law School. The symposium is an annual spring event featuring papers by current Yale Law School graduate students, critiqued by members of the Law School faculty. The entire Yale community is welcome to attend.

The symposium is a part of the Law School’s commitment to providing numerous opportunities for intellectual engagement between students and the faculty. Every year, LL.M. (Master of Laws) and J.S.D. (Doctor of the Science of Law) candidates tackle a wide range of topics, underscoring the diverse research interests of the graduate students, many of whom already hold faculty positions in the U.S. and abroad.

As part of the program, a roundtable discussion on the subject of “Making an Impact as an Emerging Legal Scholar,” co-sponsored with the Program on Law Teaching, will be held in the Faculty Lounge on Friday, April 17, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. Participating are Yale Law Professors Peter Lindseth, Yair Listokin ’05, and Nicholas Parrillo ’04. Lunch will be served. Please pre-register for this panel by contacting
