Want to take a class with Prof. Hazard before he retires?

Professional Responsibility Seminar with Geoff Hazard  

Professor Hazard will retire at the end of this academic year.  If there is sufficient student interest, he would like to teach a professional responsibility seminar this spring, probably on Fridays every other week. Please email anderser@uchastings.edu and write 'Spring Professional Responsibility Seminar' in the subject line if you are interested or have questions.  Students will not be required to enroll in this course--should it be offered--by showing interest now.
