Spotlight on Scholarship

Spotlight on Scholarship

The Northwestern Law faculty produces world-class scholarship on a diverse range of contemporary legal issues. Our faculty are influencers in the modern legal academy — their research is cited in Supreme Court decisions, called upon in expert witness testimony, and featured in the popular press. The Spotlight on Scholarship highlights a sampling of their work, connecting it to events at Northwestern Law as well as happenings in the legal world at large.
