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 and his book "We Are Better Than This: How Government Should Spend Our Money," were featured for a discussion about America's income inequality. "The purpose of the book is to give a stirring lecture on government, but also to get people involved in understanding how the taxing and spending policy of the government affects our happiness and our future wealth," Kleinbard said.

    Jody Armour was quoted about what homicide statistics say about race, class and crime in Los Angeles. “These statistics may reveal a much more subtle form of discrimination that getting rid of Jim Crow didn't get rid of and represents the next chapter in the MLK struggle," he said.
