Stephen M. Rich
Associate Professor of Law


USC Gould boasts a diverse intellectual environment in which faculty and students alike are encouraged to respond to cutting-edge legal problems with fresh and innovative ideas. I came to the law school as a junior scholar. While my own background in legal practice has shaped my interest in legal norms and my respect for practical and doctrinal scholarly interventions, my exposure to the unique intellectual perspectives of my colleagues has also encouraged me to embrace interdisciplinary viewpoints and to focus on ideas rather than labels. In the classroom, I aspire to transmit this experience to our students by helping them to situate legal practice within a larger social experience in which lay and professional perspectives on the meaning of "justice" intertwine.
