Alumni Shauhin Talesh, a new UCI Law faculty member, and his brother Rameen Talesh, UCI Dean of Students, are a lot alike. They love basketball, music and UCI. And both have returned to campus to pursue careers and give back to their alma mater. "I remember getting a call from Rameen saying, 'Hey, UCI's going to create a law school. I made it back here, and now it's your turn,' " Shauhin says. "I returned to a place that's familiar to me because I wanted to participate in building a newly founded law school, one grounded in an innovative curriculum and social justice. That's something no other university could offer."
