Adjunct Faculty

The law school’s adjunct faculty, drawn from Oregon’s most distinguished jurists and effective practitioners, offer a wealth of practical experience and special expertise to our students. The law school uses adjuncts to enrich the curriculum with specialized courses, unique perspectives, and more choices than we might otherwise offer. Environmental litigation, family mediation, international human rights, and telecommunications law are examples of specialized courses taught by talented practitioners.

With adjunct faculty, students can experience different pedagogical approaches and gain access to leading practitioners and judges. Some adjunct faculty teach using simulations, as in the dispute resolution seminar; some require students to draft documents and negotiate with one another in class, as in the environmental litigation seminar. Adjunct faculty are also valuable in teaching about newly emerging or rapidly changing areas of law.

Here is an alphabetical list of our adjunct faculty members for the 2017-18 academic year, along with the classes they teach. For information about our full time faculty, click here.
