Lecturers in 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.

KPCC-FM's "Take Two"

Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery was interviewed about the potential effects of Trump’s new tax plan on Californians, saying “…when you impact the deficit, the first effect you see is interest rates go up. And of course, that hurts the kind of people who don’t have money but need to borrow money, which again, are the kinds of people who live in the 25th district.”
