Our faculty have practiced law with large firms in major metropolitan cities; with small firms in rural county seats; in legal aid societies; in the Judge Advocates General Corps; and with the United States Department of Justice. They have debated legal issues on national television and in the press, testified before Congress, and argued cases before the United States Supreme Court. This series represents a sampling of their wide-ranging scholarship and scholarly interests.
