World-Class Faculty

Faculty excellence: Support the work of a first-rate faculty

$8 million

An outstanding faculty is the backbone of any great law school. Our faculty are both brilliant scholars and committed teachers who bring real-world experience into the classroom. They advance legal thinking across many fields with high-caliber research on topics ranging from data privacy to climate change. They lead national efforts to reform life-without-parole sentences for juveniles, promote fair regulation for insurance providers, and advance pension policy reform efforts. Our leadership as a top-ranked institution depends on our ability to provide our faculty with the resources to do their world-shaping work.

With new funding, we will:

  • Create new endowed professorships, especially in clinical instruction and other core academic strengths, to attract and retain exceptional teacher-mentors
  • Support visiting professorships and fellowships so that faculty and students can interact with and learn from other prominent scholars around the world
  • Establish endowed faculty excellence funds to provide flexible resources that advance teaching and research
