Faculty

We're here to encourage, challenge and mentor.

At Creighton University School of Law, our faculty members are exceptional scholars and gifted teachers. They’re also accessible. That’s because, instead of holding traditional office hours, they adhere to an open-door policy. So when you need them—to answer questions, test theories or just to chat—they’re there for you.
