USC Law Faculty

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

The USC 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’s book "We Are Better Than This," was featured. Kleinbard discussed income inequality in the U.S. "Our largest asset class is ourselves – investing in ourselves as human beings," Kleinbard said. "That's where inequality really ends up being a gene that's passed on, because the rich can do so much more to invest in their kids." Bloomberg TV ran another interview with Kleinbard on how lower gas prices affect the middle-class. NPR News' "The Diane Rehm Show" interviewed Kleinbard about income inequality.
