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.

Jody Armour was quoted about police violence inciting a "moral revolution" in American society. “The earlies urban riots, racial riots in the 1960s involved police encounters with a citizen; it didn’t go to trial, but the Black Citizen’s League got very upset and started marching, starting rioting. It was an early kind of harbinger to a [moral revolution],” Armour said.
