UC Hastings professors are eminent scholars and dynamic practitioners of the law who exemplify the school’s ethos of theory and action.
As a student, you can expect your courses and clinics to be led by individuals who not only have a passion for their area of focus, but a passion for sharing it. It is a faculty mantra to engage students through enthusiasm, mentoring, and experience.
In the realm of accomplishments and scholarship, our faculty is renowned. Many UC Hastings professors have written the casebooks for their classes (Torts for instance, as well as Contracts and Civil Procedure), and have argued successfully in front of the U.S. Supreme Court. Their publishing and experience often cuts across focus areas, exposing students to a rigorous interdisciplinary approach that is vital to law in the 21st century.
Click through our faculty roster and see: UC Hastings attracts some of the foremost legal minds in the country. The location and zeitgeist of San Francisco has a hand in that, welcoming and supporting people who are pushing the boundaries of established legal doctrine.
In addition to our full-time faculty, we are lucky to have an adjunct faculty comprised of senior members of the California judiciary, partners of major Bay Area law firms, and leading public officials in criminal law, environmental law, immigration and civil rights. From adjunct faculty to full-time professors, you’ll find UC Hastings to be filled with dynamic leaders and thinkers who can help forge your future career.
