With a clean slate—and faculty and administrators who bring a broad range of experience from leading institutions as well as a commitment to advancing the profession—the University of California, Irvine School of Law has an unparalleled opportunity to build a top-tier law school that is also truly innovative in the delivery of legal education.
Following are just a few of the characteristics that distinguish the University of California, Irvine School of Law’s approach to legal education from that of most other leading law schools:
“I welcome the opportunity to
work at a school where the dean believes so strongly that there must be an emphasis on experiential and interdisciplinary learning—approaches that definitely were under-emphasized when I was in law school. Although I don’t want to over-emphasize the importance of my own role, it strikes me that Erwin’s decision to hire a journalist as one of his founding faculty members graphically illustrates that he is going to be working out of a new playbook.”
