David Cruz

Professor of Law

My colleagues at USC Law are deeply knowledgeable, and committed to fostering an intellectually rigorous environment. We also have great faculty doing fascinating work across USC, which offers opportunities to work with scholars in a variety of fields. I have all the resources and support I need at USC Law to work on legal issues that matter to me most, including constitutional law and the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex persons. Probably most rewarding is working with USC Law students who are smart, talented, accomplished, and diverse. A big plus about being in Los Angeles is I’m never tempted to be bored—I especially love cycling throughout the area and going to plays and concerts.
