One of the indispensable benefits of the Program is the opportunity afforded
Program students to work closely with and be mentored by a small group of
renowned faculty whose interests reflect the diversity of thought and practice
within the arena that is public interest law and lawyering.
While many of the School’s faculty teach, conduct research, and are active in
areas of public interest law and policy, a core group is deeply involved in the
design and development of the Program and serves as the primary teaching and
advising faculty for Program courses and Program students. These faculty
members offer rich experience and expertise as public interest litigators and
advocates, applied policy experts, and distinguished scholars and teachers. They
represent diverse scholarly and pedagogical perspectives, and their areas of
expertise include, among others, urban issues, poverty law, administrative law,
sociology of the legal profession, law and politics, economics and statistics,
healthcare, human rights, gender and sexuality issues, community economic
development, criminal justice, environmental law, and labor and employment law.
