The Phyllis W. Beck Lecture is delivered by a Visiting Professor who has been appointed to the Phyllis W. Beck Professorship in Law Chair.
The Beck Chair was established through the support of the Independence Foundation for the purpose of bringing to the faculty notable leaders or outstanding scholars in law or a field related to law. Beck Chair appointees typically teach, engage with the law school community, and deliver the Beck Lecture during their tenure.
