On February 23, the UW Law School hosted an academic forum, or "teach-in," to provide insight into the developments that have followed the introduction of Governor Walker's Budget Repair Bill.

More than 250 people packed the 150-seat classroom and a nearby overflow room that was supported with a video feed of the discussion.
