Who: We welcome new & aspiring scholars, graduate and professional students, and others interested in careers in Law and Political Economy to join us in our first of a series of opportunities to talk in small groups with faculty about academic interests and career strategies. For this session, we are especially inviting scholars who intend to apply for law-related academic jobs in the coming year.

Co-sponsored by The Association for the Promotion of Political Economy & the Law (APPEAL) and the Law and Political Economy (LPE) Project. 

Participating Faculty:
Professor Amy Cohen, University of New South Wales Law (Sydney, Australia)

Professor Charlotte Garden, Seattle University School of Law 

Professor Sameer Ashar, University of California Irvine Law 

 “Office Hour” Goals and Themes: 

*Get ideas and advice for formulating research projects in the LPE approach and strategizing for job market placement.*

Connect with peers with similar concerns.

Share enthusiasm for being intellectually curious and genuinely thoughtful!

Guiding Thought (from Dr. John Haskell, University of Manchester Law): 

We all face doors that seem locked in our lives at various moments. Sometimes they are; sometimes it is just a matter of the wrong key. Sometimes it is just that there are other doors we aren’t seeing. But there is always something to do about a situation and often the best way to get unstuck (or to stay unstuck) is to have opportunities to brainstorm with others. We hope these sessions help facilitate everyone to discover more and better choices in their professional and political life journeys.
