Commissioner Saltzman also served the City of Los Angeles previously as Mayor Villaraigosa’s only appointee to the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission from 2005 to 2007.

Commissioner Saltzman has served as Associate Dean of the Gould School of Law at the University of Southern California since 1988. In that capacity, he is responsible for the law school’s student services including academic support, career counseling and job placement, student affairs and activities, financial aid and scholarships, and registration and records. Commissioner Saltzman is also an Adjunct Professor of Law at USC and has taught courses on Legal and Professional Ethics and Responsibilities, Evidence, and Legislation (Statutory Interpretation).

Commissioner Saltzman is an expert in legal and professional ethics, the learning process in law school, legislation and the political process, and disabilities issues.

Prior to joining USC, Commissioner Saltzman worked as Special Counsel to the Director of Health Services for LA County, and Legal Affairs Deputy to then-LA County Supervisor Ed Edelman.

Commissioner Saltzman has served on a number of boards and committees throughout the legal and political communities.

He has been a member of the Executive Board of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Pre-Legal Education and Admission; he served on the Board of Trustees of the National Association for Law Placement Foundation; and he was a Trustee of Law School Admission Council.

In 2011, President Obama appointed Commissioner Saltzman to the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars. That Commission advises the White house and Department of Education on promotion of excellence and achievement in education.

Among his other achievements, Commissioner Saltzman was a member of the Board of Trustees and Public Policy Committee of the LA Gay and Lesbian Center from 1999 – 2001. He is currently on the Board of Directors for the Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute and previously was a member of the Board of Directors of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.
