Faculty

USF School of Law professors bring to the classroom the highest educational credentials, substantial practical experience, and an underlying dedication to teaching, scholarship, and service.

USF professors are role models who inspire students. On our faculty you’ll find seasoned educators, practitioners, and scholars who share a zeal for teaching and are ready to help students define their own career directions.

Our professors are respected authors, researchers, and legal theorists. They have authored books, treatises, casebooks, practice guides, law review articles, and book reviews. They serve the community and the profession by participating in public interest projects, performing pro bono legal work, and drafting legislation for legal reform. Some advise government agencies, private law firms, or major enterprises.

Our faculty's enthusiasm for teaching comes to life in the classroom, in clinics, and in informal conversations with students about law and life. They help each student understand not only the law but also the social responsibilities of being a lawyer. Faculty collaborate with students on research and writing and are accessible to students outside the classroom.

The full-time faculty is complemented by a large group of adjunct, visiting, and emeritus professors. They include federal and state court judges, attorneys from public agencies, and distinguished members of the bar in private practice or who serve as counsel for business.

 

Herbst Foundation Professor of Law Julie Nice | JD, Northwestern University

"There are more than 200 accredited law schools in the country, and I certainly don't know of one that has a better teaching faculty. And yet it is a faculty that is deeply committed to scholarly research and dissemination these ideas in an effort to improve our society."
