JDPhD Workshop

Students are expected to participate in the weekly one-hour JD/PhD seminar, either in-person or remotely, as early in their program as possible, but no later than the second year. Students should give a presentation at the seminar at least once a year after their first year at the law school. During these presentations, students receive important feedback from their colleagues in the program and offer feedback to them in return. Funding support is available to assist in conference expenses if you present your paper in advance at the weekly seminar. Primary activities in the weekly seminar are: 1) research presentations, including practice conference and job talks, 2) try-outs of dissertation ideas and other works-in-progress, 3) discussion of special topics of interest to JD/PhD students (e.g., publishing in law reviews versus peer-reviewed journals), and 4) meetings with individual faculty about their research and career activities. The seminar provides an opportunity for students to meet law (particularly JD/PhD) faculty in a small-group, more-informal, setting than is generally available in formal classes, to learn about faculty research and experiences on the job market, and to get feedback on their own research. For those enrolled in the seminar, the seminar carries a one-hour credit for two semesters of participation, with an upper limit of two credit hours in total during the program.
