The USC Gould Law Leadership Society is a community of the law school's most generous supporters. Originally an annual giving society, LLS has since expanded to include more of USC Gould's philanthropic leaders. This important group supports every area of the law school, including scholarships, clinical education, student programming, and capital projects. We invite you to view the most recent Law Leadership Society Impact Report to learn more about how members have contributed to USC Gould's continued success.
