Lecturer in Law
Connie Lew-Corbridge teaches Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research in the LL.M. program. She started her legal career at Reed Smith LLP as a litigator. During her sixth year with the firm, she was recruited by a client, St. Jude Medical, to join its in-house litigation department. For the next decade, she practiced as an in-house attorney in the healthcare industry, managing a broad range of matters, including securities, commercial, and product liability litigation.
She received her B.A. in Communication Studies from UCLA, and her J.D. from the University of Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, which she attended on an academic scholarship. During law school, she helped a pro bono client secure asylum through the school’s immigration clinic.
Before law school, she was involved with a non-profit organization sponsored by Burton Snowboards to make snowboarding free and accessible to the youth in Los Angeles by working with social service agencies, foster care programs, and schools in local communities.
