Washington University School of Law’s greatest strength is its faculty. They are nationally and internationally recognized experts in fields ranging from international law and constitutional law to corporate and other private law fields. They come from a broad array of practice and disciplinary backgrounds, and utilize diverse methodologies, such as empirical studies, law and economics, and critical race theory. Many law faculty have graduate degrees in other fields and have joint appointments with other schools and departments at Washington University, including political science, business, economics, history, architecture, philosophy and environmental engineering. Complementing their extensive research and scholarship, law professors head the law school’s three centers and one institute, devoted to empirical research, innovation and economic growth, work and social capital, and international law.
Our faculty are also genuinely committed to teaching. They make it a point to get to know their students and, with a student-faculty ratio of 13-to-1, are readily accessible to answer questions about class materials, current issues in the law and even career options.
Your relationship with our faculty will continue well beyond your years at Washington University. Many of our faculty remain closely connected to law school alumni and actively participate in helping current students network with alumni in related fields.
