Each of our professors has distinct experience and expertise, allowing the law school to offer more than 100 courses and seminars in specialized areas of law. Our faculty not only teaches the law, but the intellectual tools and skills necessary to a successful legal career. Great emphasis is placed upon gaining experience in analyzing cases, statutes, and other legal materials, and in synthesizing from these materials general notions of the structure and operation of the legal system.
