Faculty produce scholarship about legal communication and legal writing pedagogy as well as in other areas including human rights, international law, environmental law, media law, professional responsibility, and reproductive rights. Faculty have held positions in state and federal government, as judicial clerks, in international and public interest organizations, and as attorneys in large and small firms.
