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.
