Valparaiso law professors hail from a variety of colleges and universities such as the University of Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, University of Illinois, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Minnesota, MIT, NYU, Notre Dame, Princeton, Stanford, UCLA, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, Yale, Washington University, Williams, and the University of Wisconsin, among others. Many of them hold not only J.D. degrees, but also have had post-graduate training in economics, education, ethics, history, religion, sociology, and philosophy.
Numerous faculty members have served as federal court clerks; others have been elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Order of the Coif. Some are members of the American Law Institute or are active in key sections of the American Bar Association and engaged in law reform. Many are grounded in empirical methodology; numerous faculty members are expert in electronic media and the ways in which they affect legal scholarship. A substantial number of professors—especially those teaching clinical and practical skills—are expert practitioners actively engaged not only in classroom teaching, but in the practice of law.
Given the breadth and depth of our faculty’s experience, it is not surprising that its members are deeply involved in national and international discourse and activities concerning the cutting-edge social, political, and economic issues of our time.
