News

Aside from their academic work, the Law School's faculty often write for leading national and international newspapers and magazines, and are even more frequently consulted by journalists from these news outlets seeking explanation of and insights into complicated legal matters. This page catalogs a sampling of articles by and about our faculty; additional articles containing quotes from the faculty are regularly posted to the Law School's Twitter feed.

We are proud that our faculty writes on a wide variety of topics from a diversity of viewpoints. No individual article represents the views of the Law School or the full membership of the Law School community, and we are proud of the range of intellectual inquiry represented here and in our faculty's scholarly work.

Journalists who wish to speak with our faculty are encouraged to visit our media inquiries page for more information.
