Faculty

  • Moritz faculty members are some of the most sought-after experts in their fields. They regularly testify before Congress, are quoted by the national media, and collectively serve on more than 200 nonprofit, civic, and legal policy boards and committees.
  • Professors are quoted more than 400 times a year by top national news outlets, including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Atlantic, NBC News, and more.
  • Our faculty members’ passion for law is paralleled only by their passion for teaching. Many of our professors have an open-door policy, allowing students to build relationships with faculty, and receive one-on-one attention throughout their studies.

The Moritz faculty members are dedicated to teaching. They have deep expertise, and they care about making a difference in the world. What that means for a Moritz student is that the student may wake up in the morning, read his or her professor quoted on something of national importance, pick up a textbook that her professor has written, and then arrive in class and find a teacher who is totally focused on that student's understanding of the law, development of lawyering skills, appreciation for the values of the profession.

One thing I love about our faculty is that we don't just write scholarship to be published in law reviews that sit in libraries. We write scholarship because we want to make a difference in the world. Our professors testify before Congress, state legislatures. They write opinion pieces that are published in The New York Times, and they want to make a difference.

I love any kind of teaching, but I especially love law school teaching, because there is so much in law school where students really learn to think in ways that they haven't considered before. They find talents within themselves that they didn't know that they had. And everything that they're learning in the classroom will someday make a client's life better. And so to feel that I have that small part in helping all of those clients is a wonderful feeling.
