Bridget Fogarty Gramme serves as Administrative Director of USD's Center for Public Interest Law (CPIL). She graduated from the University of San Diego School of Law in 2003. There, she was an intern at CPIL, and received the Outstanding Contributor to the California Regulatory Law Reporter award for her reports on the Medical Board of California and the Bureau of State Audits.

At CPIL, Gramme supervises law students in their monitoring of California’s occupational licensing agencies and drafting of articles for the California Regulatory Law Reporter. She co-edits the Reporter and assists in overseeing CPIL’s administrative functions. In addition, she participates in CPIL’s advocacy projects—from legislative advocacy on bills of interest to CPIL, to public interest impact litigation.

Gramme returned to USD as CPIL’s Assistant Administrative Director in the summer of 2014 after ten years of civil litigation experience. She was an associate at Hulett Harper Stewart, LLP where she practiced complex civil litigation, including antitrust, securities, and consumer protection matters. She was also a law clerk to the Honorable Cathy Ann Bencivengo, U.S. District Judge for the Southern District of California, and an associate at Paul, Plevin, Sullivan, & Connaughton, where she represented employers in employment discrimination and wage and hour matters.

Prior to attending law school, Gramme served as an International Women’s Issues Officer at the U.S. Department of State and the President’s Interagency Council on Women where she coordinated the Vital Voices: Women in Democracy Initiative in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and Montevideo, Uruguay. She is a member of the USD Law Alumni Board, and a College Coach at Nativity Prep Academy.
