The Research Centers — home to UW Law School's Institute for Legal Studies, Global Legal Studies Center and East Asian Legal Studies Center — supports the intellectual mission of the Law School through:
- Conferences and guest lectures on local, national and global legal issues;
- Works-in-progress workshops and other events to facilitate faculty research;
- Student-led law journal symposia and Study Abroad opportunities; and
- The Visiting Scholars Program
The Institute for Legal Studies (ILS), Global Legal Studies Center (GLS), East Asian Legal Studies Center (EALSC), the UW Human Rights Program (HRP) and the Dean's Office host a variety of scholarly events throughout the semester.
Note: Events taking place on Wednesdays at noon generally use the same Zoom link. If not, the event-specific page will have a link to join.
