Ronald Garet

Carolyn Craig Franklin Professor of Law and Religion

Becoming a lawyer is surprisingly like falling in love or having a religious conversion experience. Such changes somehow return us to ourselves. Law is about life and death, memory and meaning, truth and tragedy. It may seem to be a way of making a living, but law turns out to be a way of making (unmaking, remaking) lives—including our own.

The USC Law community is my home. Here at home, I do not need to check my beliefs at the door. I did not expect law school to engage my deepest commitments. But I am grateful that it does.
