Lee Epstein, a leading scholar in the study of judicial behavior, and Nancy Staudt (tax law), both professors of law at Northwestern University, have accepted senior offers from the University of Southern California (the USC press releases are here). Epstein will hold a joint appointment with the College of Liberal Arts at USC. Not long ago, USC also recruited a leading positive political theorist, Mathew McCubbins (from UC San Diego). With the addition of Epstein, USC will now be a very top destination of choice for students interested in a JD/PhD in political science.
