UK Law Announces Lineup for Spring Visiting Speaker Series

January 23, 2017

Faculty members at the University of Kentucky College of Law will engage with scholars from other schools across the nation this spring by continuing to host two visiting speaker series: the Randall-Park Distinguished Speaker and Faculty Brownbag Speaker. 

Both series bring distinguished legal scholars to UK Law to present and discuss their research and ideas, providing important opportunities for junior scholars to share their research, and increasing the profile of the college by introducing UK Law faculty to senior scholars from other schools.

Brian L. Frye, Associate Professor of Law, serves as the chair of the Visiting Speakers Committee. In this role, he coordinates the scheduling of visiting speakers and facilitates their visits. He works with other members of the committee and with the entire UK Law faculty to identify prominent scholars to invite to the college.
