Edwin Smith

Leon Benwell Professor of Law,
International Relations and Political Science

I came to USC because I found it to be both cordial and challenging as an evolving and growing community. My day-to-day interactions with the faculty, students and staff remind me how warm and supportive a community can be.

The vibrant transnational dimension of this institution fit perfectly with my interests in the constitutional dimensions of foreign relations, the principles of international law, and the dynamics of international affairs.

For me, the comfortable diversity of our community truly enhances USC’s status as a wonderful environment for learning, teaching and scholarship.
