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.

    Niels Frenzen was interviewed about the legal issues at play behind European states turning away migrants from Africa and the Middle East after they have crossed the Mediterranean Sea. "With a lot of these things, the details and the legality is going to come down to the specific facts," he said. "Is it an actual physical pushback? Is it a navy ship diverting a boat to go somewhere else? There are gray areas."

    Edward Kleinbard was quoted about a decision by Amazon to stop funneling its European sales through a Luxembourg-based entity to minimize its tax bill. The move is part of Amazon's "corporate maturation process," he said. "It is acknowledging that its tax model has to catch up with its actual business model."
