Their faces appear regularly on national and international television broadcasts; their names are on textbooks, treatises and articles cited in countless court opinions; their voices address juries, Presidential commissions, Senate hearings, foundation boards, and world forums. They are nationally-recognized experts in their respective fields - from criminal law to civil procedure, from antitrust to urban planning. They are the faculty at Southwestern. And they are so accessible to their students that they have earned Southwestern a reputation for faculty/student interaction that is second to none.
Office doors that are always open, small group seminars and workshops, myriad informal discussions around campus, and one of the best faculty/student ratios in any multi-division urban law school add a welcome and personal approach to the Southwestern experience. Dedicated staff members develop and provide individualized student services, serving as knowledgeable facilitators for financial aid, academic and career planning. All combine to make the Southwestern faculty and staff an extraordinary resource - and Southwestern an extraordinary school.
