Excellence in Scholarship
The University of Washington School of Law has a long and storied tradition of faculty excellence throughout its 115-year history. We have faculty who have pioneered areas of uncharted legal theory and practice, won Supreme Court cases, founded innovative NGOs and brought together cohorts of interdisciplinary colleagues to solve cross-cutting challenges.
Members of our faculty are distinguished scholars, leaders in their fields, respected practitioners and dedicated educators. They bring their scholarship and research to bear on the critical legal issues of our time and provide our students with the skills and instruction that will shape their futures and our society.
