Public Interest Law

USC Gould pioneered the concept of public interest legal education with our establishment in 1929 of the Legal Clinic at USC, which served as a model for other law schools. That leadership continues today with a broad range of opportunities for our students to deeply engage in the delivery of direct services to those in need.
