Faculty

Berkeley Law has long been home to many of the nation's leading scholars in international law. (See History).

Today, the international law faculty is known for its work on international issues that draws both upon traditional legal methods and upon interdisciplinary perspectives, such as history, political science, and economics. Deeply involved in the most pressing international issues of the day, the work of Berkeley Law faculty can be found in the latest books, the leading law journals, and in the nation's major papers and magazines.

Berkeley Law's faculty also is committed to integrating theory with practice. Berkeley Law faculty members hold or have held significant governmental positions involving international law, and they help place students in externships in the United States and abroad. Berkeley Law's faculty also offers significance experience for students through the international human rights clinical and large-scale cooperative research projects.
