Our faculty members are among the most cited law faculty in the nation, appearing in print, online, and on air, in world-renowned media outlets. But first and foremost, each faculty member is devoted to teaching.

Our faculty members are respected scholars and authors of leading casebooks and works for general readership alike. Many remain involved in practice, whether arguing cases before the Supreme Court or serving as counsel to foreign governments.  With years of experience at the bar and on the bench, our professors bring valuable insight to the classroom, affecting the life and education of each student as they influence and inform national and international legal opinion.

In the Spotlight

Nienke Grossman

"I first became interested in the role of women on international courts and tribunals as a practicing lawyer representing states before international courts. I remember walking into my first hearing at the International Court of Justice and seeing 16 men and one woman take a seat behind the bench. I began to wonder whether the paucity of women adjudicators was common across all international courts and tribunals, and if so, what impact it might have on these institutions’ legitimacy."
