The Rutgers-Camden Faculty Workshop Series offers a collegial atmosphere in which faculty from Rutgers and distinguished guests present scholarly work and discuss contemporary legal issues. It enhances the intellectual life of the law school community and Camden campus by providing a forum for critical exchange across the disciplinary and topical boundaries that often separate scholars of the law. Attendees can earn continuing legal education (CLE) credits in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York.
