Cumberland Book Clubs

Posted: Thu, 10/07/2010 - 13:11

In previous years, students have expressed their interest in convening in small groups with faculty to discuss interesting and thought provoking topics outside of the classroom.  In response to that interest, the Cumberland Book Clubs were launched.  This fall, the book clubs will be offered again.  Ten law professors have volunteered to lead the discussions and have selected a book that will form the basis for those discussions.

Sign-ups for the 2010 book clubs are currently in progress, and the deadline for joining one of the book clubs is October 11.  Each book club leader will arrange a time and place, late this semester or early next semester, for book club members to gather and participate in a discussion.  This is a great opportunity to interact with students, professors, and staff to engage in broad discussions about important topics.

A list of the books, the book club leaders, and a brief synopsis of each book are available here.
