Speakers Bureau

This year, the Mississippi Law Journal will be renewing the Speakers Bureau, a program that provides an author published in the Journal a forum on which to speak about their article’s topic. The purpose of the Bureau is to allow students, faculty, and local attorneys to explore the emerging issues in contemporary law that have been illuminated through the Journal’s publication. The Journal will be selecting the author whose topic has generated the most interest within the legal community.

This past semester the Mississippi Law Journal hosted Eloisa C. Rodriquez-Dod who presented her article It’s Not a Small World After All: Regulating Obesity Globally. Professor Dod had this to say about her experience:

It truly was an honor and pleasure to have participated in the Speaker’s Bureau.  It afforded me an opportunity to further share my thoughts on my article regarding obesity regulations.  I enjoyed the discourse with those in attendance, including faculty, students, and other visitors.  Although it was my first visit to the University of Mississippi and Oxford, I hope to return soon given the professionalism of the law journal staff and outpouring of Southern hospitality.  Thank you for hosting me.

We are excited about the response thus far and hope to establish a program that will continue to thrive in the years to come. If you would like more information pertaining to the Speakers Bureau, please contact Meredith Blasingame, Speakers Bureau Chair, at mkblasin@olemiss.edu..
