Sarah Hall is career advisor in the Graduate & International Programs office. She also teaches Presentation Skills for International Lawyers and Academic and Professional Skills for U.S. Law Studies II as part of the Two-Year LLM. Hall earned her JD degree from USC Gould in 2010, where she served as a board member on the Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal. She previously earned her BA in Economics from Swarthmore College.

In her role as career advisor, Hall counsels current students and alumni on how to navigate the U.S. legal market, as well as how to prepare for and apply to a U.S. bar exam. She holds several workshops over the course of the year to teach students how to create a U.S.-style resume and cover letter, as well as how to effectively present themselves in interviews and networking events. In addition to her work with current students, Hall is involved with the planning, development, marketing, and recruiting process for other graduate law programs.

Prior to returning to USC, Hall practiced securities litigation at O’Melveny and Myers LLP for almost four years. In her time at O’Melveny, Hall handled a variety of complex civil litigation matters, focusing on securities, class actions, and breach of contract claims. As an associate, she gained experience in developing case strategies, drafting motions, attending depositions, and preparing matters for trial and mediation.

Re: Jonathan Handel

Jonathan Handel was interviewed about contract negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and television and movie producers. "The union has worked to release writers from exclusivity agreements but only if they make less than $210,000 a year," said Handel. "The irony here is that the Writers Guild's struggling TV writers are upper income, not middle class".
