Faculty Spotlight

Dan Epps
Associate Professor of Law

“I love teaching first-year students criminal law because of how the course involves thinking about lofty and abstract moral philosophy in service of resolving the most visceral, high-stakes, and concrete disputes our legal system faces: when can the state imprison someone or even take someone’s life?”

Robert R. Kuehn
Associate Dean for Clinical Education, Professor of Law

The goal of the clinical program is to help law students transition from “thinking like a lawyer” to “doing like a lawyer.”

Rebecca Hollander-Blumoff
Vice Dean for Research and Faculty Development and Professor of Law

"The law is fundamentally about how we treat one another – our rights and obligations towards each other.  It’s important to remember that cases are about real people with real problems who come to court to get their disputes sorted out while being treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect."
