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.

    Edward Kleinbard was interviewed about the politics of tax reform. “I think it is real this time but its real in a more limited way than what people may want to hear. Where there is real momentum and real possibility is in respect to corporate tax reform,” he said.
