Law in the Liberal Arts: The Adams Summer Legal Scholars Program announces the inaugural Law and Society Summer Seminar, an intensive mini-conference in undergraduate legal studies June 6-11, 2016. The topic will be Law & Poverty: Reflections on the Legal Problems of the Poor.
Modeled after the legal studies seminars sponsored by the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society at Oxford University’s Centre for Socio-legal Studies in Oxford, UK, the Adams Program looks to replicate in this inaugural conference the spirit and format of the Oxford program in which Kenyon’s Summer Legal Scholars were among the original participants. The seminar brings together a select group of students from across the Five Colleges of Ohio and is designed to promote the close examination of current topics or themes in law through presentations and discussions led by faculty in multiple disciplines at the consortium’s colleges as well as from participating Ohio law schools.
The conference will be held on the campus of Kenyon College from June 6-11, 2016. Read more about the conference (PDF). Interested students from the following colleges should submit a letter of interest to the Office of the Provost/Dean at their respective institutions by April 1.
