Faculty Workshops & Decanal Lectures
Faculty Workshops provide an open forum for discussion on current legal issues and are lead by a legal scholar in that field. FIU Law hosts legal scholars and professors from institutions around the world who provide insight and encourage discussion on myriad legal topics. FIU Law also hosts annual Decanal Lectures on Legal Education. Workshops occur periodically throughout the year and recordings are archived in eCollections @ FIU Law Library in the Faculty Workshops series.
Past Faculty Workshops
Decanal Lectures on Legal Education
Begun in 2013, FIU Law hosts an annual Decanal Lecture on Legal Education, inviting a dean at a leading American law school to talk with FIU Law students and faculty about the past, present and future of law, law practice, and legal education.
The Fourth Decanal Lecture on Legal Education was held on November 8, 2016 and featured Eduardo M. Peñalver of Cornell Law School. Dean Peñalver spoke about the increased focus on practice-ready skill building in legal education and how to balance the needs of graduates entering various fields in law against law school resources.
