Socio-Legal Studies Workshop

The Socio-Legal Studies Workshop is an interdisciplinary seminar that brings together scholars both within and beyond the UCI community working at the intersections of law, social sciences, humanities, and the arts.  The Workshop also features a series of book talks, in which authors will discuss their recently published work. Unless otherwise noted, all Workshop sessions will meet on Fridays, 12:00–1:15 p.m., at the UCI School of Law, room 3500H.
