Nominees are invited to join based on a record of achievement reflecting the highest standards of professionalism. The College has 789 Fellows, each selected by a Board of Regents from recommendations of the Circuit Admissions Council in each federal judicial circuit and specially appointed Committees for Judicial and Foreign Fellows.
Rasmussen's scholarly expertise focuses on the interaction of market forces and corporate reorganization law. He is the author or co-author of dozens of articles published in leading law journals including the “Supreme Court Review,” “Stanford Law Review,” “Michigan Law Review” and “Yale Law Journal.” Rasmussen joined USC Law as dean and Carl Mason Franklin Chair in Law in 2007 after 18 years on the faculty of Vanderbilt University Law School.
