USC Gould School of Law Faculty

Professor Kim Buchanan Professor Alexander Capron Professor David Cruz Professor Jonathan Barnett

The USC Gould School of Law faculty is nationally recognized for its scholarship in many fields including administrative law, constitutional law, bankruptcy and corporate law, intellectual property, law and race, and taxation. Interdisciplinary scholarship in law and economics, law and history, law and philosophy, law and politics, and law and psychology has long been a signature of the school. Many USC faculty members have doctorates in other academic disciplines, and hold joint appointments in other USC departments and at the California Institute of Technology. USC's small faculty-student ratio enables students to work closely with top scholars and practitioners in both classroom and clinical settings.

    Edward Kleinbard was cited in an article about California's tax system for his ideas about rethinking the tax code to invest in key means of upward mobility, such as infrastructure and public higher education.

    Dan Nabel was interviewed on "Take Two" about the legal implications of a ruling regarding an anti-Muslim YouTube video, which an actress had removed from the website. "Google's claim was pretty simple," he said. "They said that Ms. Garcia wasn't the author of the work and the work wasn't really her performance, her acting, it was actually the entire integrated film, 'The Innocence of Muslims,' that ended up getting distributed on their platform YouTube."
