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: Michael Simkovic

Michael Simkovic recently discussed how many crypto firms are working to reorganize after the economic market downturns. “Cryptocurrency firms basically have to answer the question, ‘What is the value that they provide that existing financial institutions cannot provide just as well,’” Simkovic said.
