On October 6, 2022, the Washington and Lee Law Library hosted the fourth W&L Law Fall Scholarship Celebration. The event was co-sponsored by the Frances Lewis Law Center and took place in the Law Library's main reading room from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.
On display were dozens of scholarly articles, books, and chapters authored by the W&L Law faculty and student body between October 2019 and October 2022, with hundreds of additional works accessible online through the Scholarly Commons institutional repository.
Faculty, librarians, staff, and administrators mingled with law students over hors d'oeuvres and wine to peruse the formidable scholarly output of the W&L Law community. Spouses, alumni, faculty from W&L's undergraduate campus, and others with ties to the University were also in attendance.
Melanie Wilson, dean of W&L Law; Christopher Seaman, director of the Frances Lewis Law Center; Andrew Christensen, Head of Digital Initiatives and Outreach; and Jenny Mitchell, Archivist and Special Collections Librarian, provided welcoming remarks, alongside W&L Law Library director Michelle Cosby, who also led all attendees in a celebratory toast.
The event program, which includes a list of the scholarship on display, is available to download in PDF.
