Faculty Colloquium

Faculty Colloquium   

The Faculty Colloquium Workshops are integral to Seton Hall's efforts to nurture a dynamic community of scholars and teachers. It allows Seton Hall to showcase the work of selected scholars from other universities and Seton Hall in a forum typified by vibrant interchange. Invitees are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and institutions and the presentations typically generate a fruitful interaction between the presenter and an engaged Law School faculty. The Faculty Colloquium Workshops supplement the more informal faculty "brownbags" at which Seton Hall faculty develop and refine their ideas in a collaborative setting.

 The following is a list of upcoming speakers.
