The Law School’s Academic Workshop Program partners with the Mississippi Law Journal to arrange seminars and lectures for authors publishing in the Journal’s innovative Peer Review Forum. Lectures occur on campus. Seminars use videoconference technology to allow authors to discuss the work in depth with peer reviewers, other faculty, and student editors.
