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.

    A $5 million gift from a USC Gould School alumna that will help launch the school's new program in mediation was featured. The new Judge Judith O. Holinger Alternative Dispute Resolution Program will be one of the few specially endowed programs in the field, said USC Gould School Dean Robert K. Rasmussen. "The program is really transformative," he said. "This points us to be on the cutting edge." The story quoted Lisa Klerman who will head the new program.
