Camille Rich was appointed Associate Provost for Faculty and Student Initiatives in the Social Sciences on July 1, 2015. She joined the USC Gould School of Law faculty in the fall of 2007 following five years of private practice where she worked primarily on general commercial litigation and internal investigations.
Her research and teaching interests include constitutional law, feminist legal theory, legal ethics, employment discrimination, and children and the law. Prior to entering private practice, Professor Rich clerked in the Southern District of New York for District Judge Robert L. Carter and on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals for Circuit Judge Rosemary Barkett. Professor Rich has also worked on various pro bono matters involving Title VII retaliation claims and disability rights and was awarded the Legal Aid Society Pro Bono Award in recognition of her work on female prisoners’ rights.
Professor Rich graduated from Yale Law School and was a senior editor on the Yale Law Journal and the Yale Journal of Law and Feminism. She was awarded a postgraduate research fellowship at Yale Law School, during which she began her research on ways that anti-discrimination laws can better accommodate the shifting contingent nature of racial and ethnic identity.
