Strength of Faculty

At St. John's Law, we believe that scholarship is a central part of the life of a law school. That commitment to scholarship appears both in the scholarly programs we host and in the impressive scholarly output of our own faculty.

Through conferences, colloquia, and workshops, we bring the world's top legal scholars to the law school to stimulate a vibrant scholarly culture.Through our unique Visiting Jurist Series, we create a forum for both faculty and students to engage with influential jurists. Our academic centers provide resources and structure to explore topics of particular interest to our faculty, including civil rights and economic justice, alternative dispute resolution, international and comparative law, law and religion, bankruptcy, and labor law.

St. John's faculty members maintain the Law School's commitment to scholarship by authoring influential books, treatises, and articles in almost every legal discipline. Their work has been published in top journals and law reviews and by the most prestigious academic presses. Faculty members come from diverse personal, professional, and academic backgrounds, and many enjoy national and international recognition in their fields. To keep abreast of our scholarly activities, please read our Faculty Scholarship Blog and subscribe to the Law School's Twitter feed and Facebook page.
