Adjunct Lecturer in Law - Commercial Real Estate Finance Transactions

Gould School of Law Faculty Los Angeles, California

USC Gould School of Law is seeking a lecturer to co-teach Commercial Real Estate Finance Transactions (LAW 639), a two-unit course, for the Spring 2022 semester.  The course is an in-depth treatment of cutting-edge techniques used in commercial finance. It will include a discussion of the evolution of the finance markets, identification and techniques used by lenders, and capital stack structures that drive the most sophisticated transactions in today’s vibrant real estate markets.

Candidates must have a JD and at least five years of practice in real estate law.  In addition, this course will be taught on campus, so instructors must be local.

USC reserves the “Adjunct” appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean.

Equity, diversity, inclusion, opportunity, and access are of central importance to the Gould School of Law. Gould holds a unique position in society, and within the university, as every aspect of these principles is influenced by and can be protected through legal rules and institutions. At Gould, we are proudly committed to maintaining a community in which each person respects the rights of others to live, work, and learn in peace and dignity, to be proud of who and what they are, and to have equal opportunity to realize their full potential as individuals and members of society.
