Entire School to Take Part in a Day Dedicated to Research and Scholarship
NEW YORK, March 17, 2006 --- On Tuesday, March 21, 2006, the New York Law School community will come together for its third biennial celebration of scholarship, an all-day event called Faculty Presentation Day. On that day, classes are cancelled and the entire community—students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests—will attend presentations of faculty research papers on some of the most timely and thought-provoking topics of concern to legal practitioners and academics today.
This year’s Faculty Presentation Day has been organized into a series of panels around the main theme of the evolving nature of the legal world.
“This year’s presentations are a striking illustration of the state of the law and of legal education,” said Stephen J. Ellmann, associate dean for faculty development and professor of law. “They also illustrate a startling fact: These old and seemingly conservative institutions are actually, or also, institutions caught up in change.”
Following is a sampling of panels and featured presentations:
The full Faculty Presentation Day schedule and online registration form are available here.
A total of 33 academic papers will be presented and subsequently published in the New York Law School Law Review. The papers are available upon request.
The first Faculty Presentation Day took place in 2002. Its success inspired the New York Law School administration to make it a permanent part of the intellectual life of the school, taking place every two years in the spring semester.
