In UST Law's brief ten-year history, we have been able to hire tenured or chaired faculty from nationally regarded law schools such as Notre Dame, Minnesota, Illinois, Baylor, Pepperdine, and St. John’s. Fully accredited in the shortest time possible, the school occupies a new $35 million building in downtown Minneapolis that an ABA site evaluation team called "quite simply breathtaking." UST Law has raised more than $90 million to date (toward a goal of more than $135 million), allowing it to offer competitive salaries to faculty and staff, generous financial aid to students, and substantial loan repayment assistance to future graduates in public interest jobs. We are among the top 25 law schools in the nation in endowment per student. By various measures of scholarly accomplishment and prominence, our faculty consistently ranks in or near the top quarter of law schools in the country.
UST Law's success stems in large part from its unique mission to "integrate faith and reason in the search for truth through a focus on morality and social justice." As a Catholic school, UST Law draws on the wisdom of faith and law, with a special focus on ethics, professionalism, and servant leadership. ... Applications should be sent to Professor Gregory Sisk. Applications will be received in confidence. We urge candidates interested in applying to us to include in their application a description of how they could contribute to various aspects of UST Law's distinctive mission.
