Faculty Scholarship

UCI Law’s faculty address the most important issues of the day, from the radically new challenges in intellectual property and comprehensive immigration reform to the changing nature of the legal profession, the impacts of climate change, reform of election and campaign laws, the protection of consumers in economic crisis, the interaction of international and national law, and much more. At the heart of our scholarship is not only rigorous attention to legal norms but also a deep appreciation for interdisciplinary work, bringing together law with such disciplines as political science, criminology, sociology, public health, and business.
