On Friday, August 26, 2022, Catholic Law launched its 2022-2023 Faculty Research Colloquium series. The series is aimed at sharing research of those in the legal academy — both members of the Catholic Law faculty as well as invited guests.

In the first meeting of the new year, members of the Catholic Law faculty met with Catholic Law Reference Librarian Steve Young regarding expanding scholarly impact. This practical presentation focused on how to improve the visibility and impact of faculty scholarship, author profiles, and the role of the library during the pre and post-publication process.

According to Professor Lucia Silecchia, Catholic Law’s new Associate Dean for Faculty Research, “Scholarship is an important contribution that my colleagues on the faculty make to the development of law, the solving of legal problems, and the wealth of critical thought on fundamental legal questions of our time. It is also a way in which we deepen our own knowledge of the most current issues in the fields we teach and contribute to scholarly conversations with our colleagues at other schools across the country and, indeed, around the world.” She continued, “through the years, I have learned a great deal from my colleagues about the many fields in which they work, and I look forward to learning more about their current research projects.”

Faculty support and engagement are of the utmost importance to Catholic Law. In addition to presentations of works-in-progress by the Catholic Law faculty, scholars outside the law school will also be invited to participate in the Faculty Research Colloquium series and benefit from conversations with Catholic Law faculty as they develop their own scholarly work.

Catholic Law looks forward to the depth and breadth of topics that will be explored in this year’s series. For additional information regarding upcoming events, please check the News and Events page.
