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.

re: Jonathan Handel
Jonathan Handel was interviewed about an antitrust case involving major Hollywood studios operating in the E.U. "This is a direct challenge to the international business model within Europe for the American media companies," Handel said. "The issue in this case is whether the E.U. is a single market, as they contend, or a collection of countries."

Jody Armour was interviewed on "NewsNation" about the disproportionate incarceration of black men and President Obama's push for criminal justice reform. "In some of our neighborhoods ... up to 90 percent of young black males are going to wind up in jail, on probation or on parole at some point in their lives. That's staggering," Armour said. "We're talking about the equivalent of maybe a thousand Hurricane Katrinas hitting a thousand Ninth Wards in terms of the damage that's been inflicted on the black community over the last 30 years as a result of mass incarceration."
