Our Faculty & Staff

Outstanding full-time and adjunct faculty, together with teaching fellows, provide guidance and grounding as students progress from “thinking like a lawyer” to applying core legal concepts to the complexity of modern life

The learning environment is one of formative assessment as full-time faculty and professional staff support students in honing discrete legal skills and developing professional judgment.
