The SMU Law Faculty Forum is an ongoing series of presentations of works-in-progress by scholars from SMU Dedman School of Law and from law schools around the country and the world. The Faculty Forum provides an opportunity for new ideas to be explored through informal discussion between the presenter and SMU faculty. As part of its commitment to scholarship, SMU Dedman School of Law sponsors these forum presentations throughout the academic year.
