The Rule of Law Collaborative’s Emerging Scholars Workshop is a small, closed-door, interdisciplinary gathering of academics whose work significantly impacts or centers on the rule of law. Six emerging scholars will present a draft of a journal article, a book or dissertation chapter, or a nascent concept piece to discuss at the workshop. Each scholar has been paired with an Academic Partner here at USC, who will review the work and offer comments. The purpose of the workshop is to provide a collegial forum for academics to discuss important rule of law work as well as help participants build a strong, lasting peer network across disciplines and institutions.
The workshop will take place on November 12, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in Faculty Conference Room 302. We expect 15-25 people to attend, including the six Academic Partners, six Emerging Scholars, and other faculty and staff from around the USC campus.

Academic Partner: Breanne Grace, Assistant Professor, College of Social Work
