Felipe Jiménez focuses his research in the areas of private law, legal and political philosophy, and comparative private law. He teaches contracts and private law theory. 

His dissertation, The Pluralism of Contract: A Theory of Contract Law, offers a novel account of contract law's foundations and of their impact on contractual parties' rights and duties as well as the theory of adjudication. 

Jiménez graduated, summa cum laude, from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, and holds LLM (Legal Theory) and JSD degrees from New York University. Before joining USC Gould in 2019, he worked for the international arbitration practice of Covington and Burling LLP.

Re: Dwight Stirling

Dwight Stirling was quoted about military responses to sexual assault cases. "The military has tried to solve this issue with all kinds of new programs and personnel and offices and SAPR and what not. None of it has worked. I contend that it will never work until you allow the person who is a survivor, the victim, their day in court," said Sterling.
