Distinguished scholars. Exceptional teachers.
Our full-time faculty are recognized nationally for their distinguished scholarship and exceptional teaching. BU Law is #10 among all US law schools for the most cited professors in the SSRN Top 200. Brian Leiter’s Law School Reports ranks our faculty 21st in the nation for scholarly contributions by tenure-stream faculty from 2010 to 2014.
The Princeton Review consistently lists our faculty at or near the top of its annual “Best Professors” list. Four of our professors have been honored with the University’s Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching, and three of our faculty have been named William Fairfield Warren Distinguished Professors, the highest distinction bestowed by Boston University upon senior faculty members who remain actively involved in research, scholarship, teaching, and the University’s civic life.
Visiting professors join our faculty from distinguished law schools across the country to lecture and conduct scholarship at BU Law. Our LLM programs in Banking & Financial Law, International Business Law, and Taxation have dedicated faculty who bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom. And highly experienced judges, law firm partners, in-house counsel, and government officials teach various JD seminars as lecturers and adjunct professors.
