University of Kansas School of Law

Happy New Year! We just wrapped up an exciting fall semester at Green Hall, and this edition of the KU Law Brief features some of the highlights. We’re also looking forward to stimulating spring events, which you can preview on our calendar. By now you should have received the fall issue of the KU Law Magazine; we hope you enjoyed it. As part of a commitment to cost efficiency and the environment, the spring edition of the magazine will be electronic rather than printed. We will let you know when and where to find it online in the coming months.
