One of four new faculty members this year, Prof. Ross will teach in UCI Law’s innovative Lawyering Skills program for first-year students. He comes from UCLA School of Law, where he taught legal practice and co-supervised the trial advocacy clinic. Last year, he co-authored an article, The Collection Gap, which addressed regulators’ failure to substantially collect financial penalties they impose against corporate and white-collar offenders.  After the article was cited by The New York Times and other news outlets, Professor Ross and his co-author launched a related blog to continue the conversation about regulatory breakdowns. Prof. Ross graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School and began his career as a judicial clerk for U.S. District Judge A. Howard Matz. Before teaching, he practiced commercial litigation at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges.
