The Center on Finance, Law, and Policy’s “blue bag lunches” aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations and showcase the work being done at the University of Michigan on issues related to finance, law, and policy. Graduate students and faculty are welcome to present research related to finance, law, and policy at any stage at these monthly events – from general questions and ideas, to works-in-progress, to published work. The schedule for the 2019-20 Academic Year is listed below.
When classes are in session, Blue Bag Lunches are held on the first Thursday of each month from Noon – 1 p.m. in Jeffries Hall 1025 (Law School). Presentations are open to faculty, students, and staff with no RSVP required — but limited numbers of free lunches are available, so you should come early!
