    At Catholic Law, the faculty are experts in their fields and bring with them an array of diverse perspectives through which they study and approach the law. For Professor Susanna Fischer, her “view of American Law is infused with a comparative perspective because [her] first legal studies, qualification as a lawyer and legal practice all took place in the United Kingdom. Only after practicing for six years in London as a barrister did [she] come to the United States and encounter the study and practice of American law.”

    Student Spotlight: Meet Third-Year Law Student Patrick Hall

    As a student, there is no better way to learn how to navigate and succeed in law school than learning from someone who has been in your shoes, and Catholic Law students go out of their way to help support one another. For third-year law student Patrick Hall, this dynamic has been an important part of his law school experience and he leans into this mission every day through his various roles on campus. “Catholic Law does an excellent job of facilitating mentor-mentee relationships. There are formal mentors, but the informal relationships students forge together are plentiful and strong. That is one of the perks of having a tight-knit legal community.”

    Why Catholic Law: A Moment With The Honorable William T. Newman

    At Catholic Law, the alumni remain a connected and caring part of the community—sharing a commitment to academic achievement and the pursuit of justice, mercy, and humble service with our law students. For The Honorable William T. Newman ’77, that pursuit is deeply important to the next generation of lawyers. “I think law students today have an important opportunity to get directly involved in helping to change the system, to make the system more open and welcoming and fair, to all people. That is such an important thing. We go to law school because we are talking about justice and laws being equally applied to everyone, and I think more than ever this is an exciting time to be there on the forefront to make sure that things are done in an equitable way and all are treated fairly.”

    At Catholic Law, the faculty is dedicated to providing a connected, focused, and practical legal education. For Professor Emeritus George P. Smith, that means bridging his scholarly interests with his teachings to provide students with opportunities to see law in action. “Reading cases and then testing the rules deriving from them in ‘the marketplace of ideas’ (i.e., life), is the  best way to teach and to understand what law is, and at the same time, learn ways to make law more adaptive to efforts to work toward the achievement of a level of social justice in contemporary society.”

    At Catholic Law, the faculty brings the full breadth of their experiences as practitioners into their classrooms. Dean Stephen C. Payne, who will be teaching criminal law to first-years this fall, credits his early career in the Army JAG Corps for his strong foundation as a practitioner. “I started off as a JAG Corps prosecutor. I really appreciate having that foundation. In the Army working general crimes, you are much more like a local prosecutor in that role. That gave me great skills and taught me how to be a lawyer, so when I went into private practice and worked on complex, sophisticated corporate crimes and corporate criminal investigations, I was good. That experience was a good foundation.”

Smith exhibits gratitude for the opportunity to pursue all facets of her dreams, and shared, there couldn't be a "better time for me to be a D.C. pageant holder and also be in law school, and also be working full-time—it all kind of came together."

All of these disciplines have a lot in common.”

    At Catholic Law, the faculty are passionate about their work. For Professor Cara H. Drinan, the experience she gained while working in private practice led to her commitment to criminal justice reform. “My scholarship explores the various ways in which our criminal justice system is broken, including the over-policing of poor, minority communities and schools, disparate access to counsel, and the uniquely American practice of extreme prison sentences.  I’m especially interested in reforms that keep children out of the criminal system and respond instead to rehabilitative needs.”

    Faculty Feature Series: Meet Professor Antonio Perez

    At Catholic Law, the faculty examines all sides of an argument. For Professor Antonio Perez, the ability to see an argument from different perspectives is a crucial skill for a good lawyer and advocate. “The capacity to understand the other side’s argument or position better than they understand it themselves is the key to superior legal practice, whether it’s in advocacy, counseling, or dealmaking. It requires a lot of empathy and open-mindedness and the ability to keep on thinking about problems from every possible perspective. That means learning how to listen and ask questions that enable you to see why people, especially the ones with whom you disagree, think what they think and want what they want.”
