The FIMULAW is an interdisciplinary conference held jointly by the Faculties of Information and Media Studies, Music, and Law at Western University.
The FIMULAW event "provides graduate students and faculty members across our three faculties the opportunity to work together to address shared concerns which merit novel, interdisciplinary responses".
Several LiT.RL lab members participated in presentations for the second annual FIMULAW event on April 13, 2018 at the FIMS & Nursing Building here on campus at Western.
