Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy names Joel Feuer Executive Director
Aug 16, 2013
Joel A. Feuer, a partner at Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher LLP since 1989, has been appointed executive director of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law. He will join the law school on Sept. 1.
"We are delighted to welcome Joel Feuer to our law school," said UCLA School of Law Dean Rachel F. Moran. "His real-world experience in practice will be invaluable in furthering the work of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy and in helping to prepare the next generation of business leaders."
Joel Feuer has handled a broad range of complex business law matters and has regularly counseled corporations and their directors and officers on corporate governance matters and transactions. He served as co-chair of the litigation department for Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher's Los Angeles and Century City offices and as one of the leaders of the firm's securities litigation practice group.
"I am honored to join UCLA School of Law as the next executive director of the Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy," Feuer said. "I look forward to working with Dean Moran and the UCLA Law community to build on the institute's accomplishments and help advance solutions to current business law and policy issues."
Feuer graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree from Pomona College in 1976. He then attended University College, Oxford, and received a first-class honours degree in politics, philosophy and economics. Feuer earned his J.D. degree from the UC Berkeley School of Law, where he served as the Supreme Court editor of the California Law Review. Following law school, he joined Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher, but he left in April 1983 to become United States District Court Judge Pamela Rymer's first law clerk.
Feuer is a frequent speaker on corporate litigation issues. He is on the board of directors of the Constitutional Rights Foundation and has been a member of the board of trustees of Pomona College since 2011. In fall 2013, he will become a member of Pomona College's executive committee and chair of the trusteeship committee.
The Lowell Milken Institute for Business Law and Policy was established in 2011 with a $10 million gift from UCLA School of Law alumnus Lowell Milken, UCLA Law's 2009 Public Service Alumnus of the Year and a leading philanthropist and pioneer in education reform. The institute influences the field of business law and policy through innovative research, targeted policy analysis and sophisticated training that prepares UCLA School of Law students to become leaders in an entrepreneurial economy.
