50 Years of Legal Scholarship: Celebrating the Work of Marshall S. Shapo

April 17, 2020

Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is proud to host a conference in honor of Marshall S. Shapo, the Frederic P. Vose Professor of Law. Shapo is a nationally renowned expert on torts and products liability law and has published prolifically on these topics during his impressive 50-year academic career. One book reviewer aptly described him as "[a] towering presence in American tort law."

During this day-long event, peer scholars from Northwestern Law and around the country will participate in panels covering the primary areas of Shapo’s work.
