The faculty members at the University of St. Thomas School of Law are leaders in their fields academically, but also receive consistent praise for accessibility and teaching. We are proud to be among the best law schools for professors, currently ranked #8 on Princeton Review’s “Best Professors” list. Our faculty also made the top 10 in 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015. Our professors influence students through the classroom, other scholars through writing in scholarly journals and books, and judges through work in the courts. 

In addition to our full-time faculty, St. Thomas School of Law regularly welcomes adjunct professors from throughout the Twin Cities legal community. Our adjuncts include some of the most respected judges and lawyers in the Twin Cities and the wealth of knowledge and expertise they bring to the classroom gives students a unique view of a variety of challenging subjects.


The staff at St. Thomas School of Law is a group of professionals dedicated to student success. Many hold advanced degrees, including several at the director level who hold J.D. degrees and have practiced law.
