Faculty Experience

Our faculty are experienced attorneys and teachers.

Faculty commitment to student success and their legal experience set them apart.

Our professors base their teaching on extensive professional experience, averaging 13 years of law practice before entering the classroom.

Imagine learning criminal law from a professor who was a prosecutor for 20 years—or learn about national security from a retired brigadier general and former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Homeland Defense.
