William Mitchell’s full-time faculty benefit from the experience and wisdom of several esteemed professors emeritus. These faculty members have extensive legal and teaching experience and, after many years with the college, they were honored with the title of emeritus professor from their peers. They continue to work in the legal field and periodically return to the college to teach and share their knowledge with students and alumni.
