USC Gould School of Law Faculty
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.

Robert Rasmussen was quoted about the use of an automatic stay in declaring bankruptcy, which immediately suspends most collection efforts against debtors and their property. "Those who file for bankruptcy should be aware of the breadth of the stay, what it covers and what it does not," Rasmussen said. "Also, it makes little sense for a debtor to make a payment right before filing if the underlying debt would be subject to the stay."
