The diverse programming of the Urban Law Center advances the scholarship and pedagogy of urban law, enriches the dialogue on contemporary urbanism, and makes an impact on the most pressing issues facing America's metropolitan regions.

Conferences such as the Cooper-Walsh Colloquium explore scholarly and practice-oriented issues related to urbanism and the law.

Prominent urban scholars from within and beyond the legal academy are invited for lectures and other focused talks.

The Center supports urban-focused legal research and invites visiting faculty for scholarly exchanges.
