CLEO: USC Center in Law Economics and Organization
A multi-disciplinary center for research, pedagogy, and academic exchange
The USC Center in Law, Economics and Organization (CLEO) is a research center that works to understand the interaction of economics, law and organization. CLEO is both an interdisciplinary and a multi-departmental center; it draws upon the resources of the Law School, the Marshall School of Business and the College of Letters, Arts and Science's department of economics to sponsor front-line research, provide scholarships and fellowships, and organize conferences, symposia and workshops that offer new insights and fresh perspectives on the intersections of law and economics.
Although the center is housed at the Law School, its affiliates include faculty and students from throughout the university. Its directors are Simon Wilkie, Senior Fellow at the Annenberg Center for Communication and former Chief Economist at the Federal Communications Commission, and Gillian Hadfield, Professor of Law and Economics.
