Legal Studies Workshop

Current Offerings

Legal Studies Workshop (5801): The Legal Studies Workshop is designed to support students working on a piece of legal scholarship with an eye to publication. The workshop will meet four times a quarter, and will be offered in most quarters. Students may sign up for as many quarters they wish, and will receive one credit for each quarter they are enrolled. The bulk of time each session will be devoted to presentations of one or two student works-in-progress. Every student is expected to present her/his own work at least once over the quarters she/he is enrolled in the Workshop, and to provide constructive oral feedback on others' work. We will set aside some time during the quarter for informal discussion of research ideas that are in a very early stage. We welcome students who are just starting to explore their interest in an academic career; if you have any questions about whether the course is suitable for you, please contact Prof. Barbara Fried (bfried@stanford.edu) and Prof. Bernadette Meyler (bmeyler@law.stanford.edu). Attendance is mandatory, absent extenuating circumstances. There are no written requirements for the course, and no requirement that the work presented be original to the Workshop. Students may wish to use the Workshop as an opportunity to expand on seminar papers or pursue independent research projects for which they are getting separate credit through one of the research tracks (e.g., directed research, dissertation). Whether students are working on a new project or revising an old, the expectation is that students will develop their topics independently of the course. Students who would like to participate in the Workshop but feel they need help in developing a workable research topic should consult faculty members ahead of time. Elements used in grading: Class participation and attendance. CONSENT APPLICATION: To apply for this course, students must complete and submit a Consent Application Form available at https://law.stanford.edu/education/courses/consent-of-instructor-forms/. See Consent Application Form for instructions and submission deadline.
