Nation's Leading Authority on Computer Crime Law Joins USC Gould

Orin Kerr, the nation's leading authority on internet surveillance, computer crime law and criminal procedure, is joining USC Gould School of Law in January.

A law professor at George Washington University since 2001, Kerr's scholarly publications have been cited in more than 2,500 articles and 250 judicial opinions. He has argued cases before the United States Supreme Court and in federal circuits as well as testified before Congressional committees.

"I am thrilled that Orin is joining our faculty," said Andrew Guzman, dean of USC Gould. "I have followed his work for years, and hold him in the highest regard. Our faculty and students will greatly benefit from Orin becoming part of our intellectual community."
