Williamjames Hoffer, J.D., Ph.D.

Professor, Pre-Law Advisor
Department of History

I teach a number of subjects including legal, economic and military history all with a view towards understanding how governments change and are affected by change with a focus on the United States. As both a lawyer and historian, I combine a number of different techniques not necessarily to find answers, but to start asking good questions. I bring this perspective to my research as well, which concentrates on political and legal history in the modern U.S. though future projects will look earlier. I believe that universities are the greatest contributors to human advancement and am very pleased to be a small part of that effort.
