Association of American Law Schools
The internal faculty workshop is a staple of the modern law school environment. It serves both social and intellectual functions within the faculty community. Socially, workshops are among the few occasions when large numbers of faculty assemble in the same room to do anything other than argue about appointments or the academic calendar. They are also often the primary-or even the only-way in which faculty learn what their colleagues in different fields are doing.' Intellectually, workshops are intended to improve the work product of the presenters and to sharpen or expand the thinking of the audience members.
