Catherine L. Carpenter '76 The Honorable Arleigh M. Woods and William T. Woods Professor of Law / Associate Dean for the Hybrid-Online J.D. Program / Co-Director of the Moot Court Honors Program
"One of the most exciting aspects of teaching a first year course in law is having the opportunity to watch new students blossom as they gain confidence and perspective."
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.
