Lecturers in Law
USC Gould School of Law

With its proximity to downtown Los Angeles—home to major law firms, public interest groups and courthouses—and to the region's many entertainment, media and technology companies, USC Gould is able to draw on a wealth of legal talent. More than 100 Lecturers in Law bring to our classrooms their specialized legal knowledge and years of experience on the bench and bar, in business, and throughout government agencies to enrich the education of our JD, graduate and undergraduate students. In addition to being judges, prosecutors and law firm partners, our part-time faculty members have served as CEOs of motion picture studios, Supreme Court advocates, attorneys representing athletes and major sports teams, and counselors guiding biotech and internet entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Learning the law from such seasoned practitioners provides students with a nuanced appreciation of the connections between legal theory and real-world problem-solving.

Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich wrote an op-ed about the hypocrisy of certain laws in Texas. "You have to hand it to those Texans," she wrote. "On one hand, they believe in liberty — to not wear a mask. But for the victim of rape or incest to have control over her body? No way."
