Ervin and Florine Yoder Chair in Real Estate Law

USC Gould is at the center of Southern California’s opportunities and innovations in real estate law. My interests are in real estate law and business and much of my published work has been about land use planning and redevelopment. Many of my former students can point proudly to a specific project they were instrumental in bringing into existence or a pristine site they worked to preserve.

The Southern California real estate community is akin to a small town where most of us know each other, or are one contact away from virtually anyone else in the business. Through USC Gould, our alumni routinely tap into this broad base. The reach and benefits of the USC connection become apparent in the outstanding guest experts who speak in my classes and host my students at site visits of their projects. I value my involvement in the USC Real Estate Law and Business Forum where our law students have an opportunity to learn from and meet the best and brightest in the real estate field.
