Welcome to USC Gould

Choosing the right law school can be an overwhelming process. From LSAT preparation and the creation of your personal statement to figuring out how many law schools to apply to, the list goes on and on. Ultimately, your goal should be to find a law school which best fits your needs. Here at USC Gould, you will find the atmosphere supportive, diverse, and collegial.

Our stellar faculty and an innovative interdisciplinary approach to teaching make our law school one of the most prominent in the country.

The classes are rigorous and challenging. From hands-on clinics and dual-degree programs, to alliances with world-class universities for study abroad opportunities, you will find your passion and see it fulfilled.

We believe in a holistic approach when it comes to the application process, and our goal is to create as dynamic and diverse a class as possible. With nearly 5,000 applications received last year, the process is highly selective, and I encourage you to apply early.

I hope I have piqued your interest, and challenged you to take the next step: schedule a tour, sit in on a class, or attend one of our information sessions. We are always available to answer your questions and to help make the process less daunting.

As I said in the beginning, your goal should be to find a law school which best fits your needs. At USC Gould, the possibilities are endless, and the path is waiting to be explored.

I hope that your journey to becoming a lawyer begins with us.
