    The World-Renowned Faculty of Washington University School of Law

    Washington University has excellent faculty, people who are smart and engaged and are interested in scholarship but also like to work with students and like to teach. I have an amazing group of colleagues, incredibly dynamic scholars as well as teachers and people who are really committed to making a difference, not only within the classroom but outside of the classroom, as well. Pound for pound, if you go to most law schools in the country, you will not see a level of teaching quality close to what we expect the average teacher at Washington University to manifest.

    Law School Exam Tips, with Professor Anne Coughlin (2011)

    What I’d like to do is to go ahead and talk to you for maybe 20 or 30 minutes, tops, and then open up to your questions and answers and I’ll give my answers. Of course, this is a session for you so I’m going to cover the things that I think are important for you to know but I also want to leave ample time for you to ask me the the questions that you have in mind. And just speaking roughly I’m going to break my remarks into three parts. I’m first going to say just a couple of words to try to demystify the law school exam…

    Law at Cambridge

    (upbeat piano music) – The main reason I chose Law at Cambridge is the flexibility. – I wanted a subject that was very current and sort of up-to-date with what was going on in the world right now. – I was able to study human rights law, which allowed me to look into very interesting topics, such as immigration, or the rights of religion. – The Law course at Cambridge involves thinking about the Law as it relates to individuals, the law as it relates to the state, and the law as it relates in between states. – Students are expected to think critically about the law as it is,…
