Clare Pastore

Professor of the Practice of Law

I came to USC after many years of poverty law and civil rights practice in the vibrant Los Angeles nonprofit community. In my capacity as Professor of the Practice of Law, I bring students into contact with that community through courses such as the Access to Justice Practicum, Poverty Law, and Suing the Government. I love how enthusiastic USC students are about courses and projects that connect them with the problems of needy people and those without resources to navigate the justice system. Many of my former students have become colleagues in the advocacy world and some have even founded their own nonprofits. It's a pleasure to work with such creative and dedicated students and alumni.
