Last Updated: November 17, 2020




Omar H. Noureldin (JD 2014) is a litigation attorney at Munger, Tolles & Olson in the firm’s Los Angeles office. His practice focuses on high-stakes and complex commercial, constitutional and civil rights litigation. Since 2016, he has been a lecturer in law at the USC Gould School of Law, his alma mater. Noureldin teaches seminars on constitutional theory, constitutional litigation and judicial decision-making. He graduated in the top 10 percent of his law school class, Order of the Coif.

During the 2020 election cycle, he served as a policy advisor to the Pete Buttigieg presidential campaign and co-led the campaign’s civil rights policy committee. He later served on the Joe Biden presidential campaign as a member of the democracy reform policy committee.

Equal parts policy wonk and community organizer, Noureldin served as vice president and general counsel of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, a national civil rights and religious freedom nonprofit. He increased the public understanding of Islam and improved laws and policies that affected American Muslims and other marginalized communities through public policy advocacy, media relations and community empowerment. He was a sought-after legal and policy analyst for national TV news.

An active member of his communities, Noureldin is a leadership fellow with the Equality California Institute, a member of the Ninth Circuit’s Law Clerk Advisory Committee and the diversity lead for the USC Gould Board of Councilors Clerkship Committee. He also founded the USC/UCLA Law Clerkship Diversity Initiative--a pipeline program that increases the number of diverse law students who apply for federal judicial clerkships.

Noureldin clerked for Circuit Judge Dorothy W. Nelson on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and Chief District Judge Virginia A. Phillips on the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

Before law school, Noureldin worked and lived in Middle Eastern refugee camps as a youth education counselor. He helped refugee high school students apply to college. A first-generation college student and professional, Noureldin received his undergraduate degree in science, technology, and international affairs from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
