Twenty New Adjunct Professors Join AUWCL for Spring 2018

Jan. 16, 2018

AUWCL is pleased to announce an impressive group of new adjunct professors who are teaching courses at the law school for the first time this spring. These 20 new adjunct professors – 9 of whom are AUWCL alumni! – are teaching courses ranging from Criminal Procedure, to Government Contracts, to a new course in Computers in the Law. They bring experiences from their work with the U.S. Government, international organizations, and top law firms and are set to make an immediate impact on AUWCL students.

“It is a reflection of this law school’s excellent teaching and reputation that we continue to attract such top notch lawyers to educate our students in specialized fields.  It’s an honor to work with all of them,” said Professor William Snape, assistant dean for adjunct faculty affairs. 

See the entire list below – alumni are marked by their class years.
