As one of the strongest and top-rated law schools in the nation, especially in the study of media and entertainment law, the creation of a program like The Ziffren Center will give the school even more depth. The Center will provide research support, curricular innovations, new programming, and hands-on training to benefit not only the students, but the faculty and community as well.

Ziffren has a long list of credentials highlighted by Dean Jennifer Mnookin, “Ken was a remarkable UCLA law student – at the top of his class, editor in chief of UCLA Law Review and a law clerk after graduation to Chief Justice Earl Warren. His career in media and entertainment law has been equally remarkable, and throughout he has given back to our Institution so generously with his time, wisdom, knowledge, and philanthropy.”

He earned her J.D. from UCLA in 1965 to become one of the leading media and entertainment lawyers in the nation. He has been acting as an adjunct professor since 1998, currently teaching a Motion Picture Distribution seminar. He is the member of several UCLA groups, such as the Centennial Campaign Cabinet and the UCLA School of Law Board of Advisors.
