Faculty, law students and senior graduate students meet over lunch to discuss works-in-progress on law and culture in East Asia. This informal setting encourages discussion, and the focus on new and cross-disciplinary research provides a nuanced view of Asian institutions and practices. Students may participate for either one or three course credits, and hence the Colloquium Series offers a unique and appealing way for Cornell students to learn directly from prominent scholars and intellectuals about the legal culture of East Asia.
