More on Ed Kleinbard's Move From Joint Tax Committee to USC

Kleinbard (color) On Tuesday, I blogged the news that Edward D. Kleinbard is leaving his position as Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation on May 15, 2009 (after 20 months in the job) to join the faculty at USC Law School. USC issued this press release today:

University of Southern California Gould School of Law has recruited Edward D. Kleinbard, chief of staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation in Washington, D.C., to join the USC Law faculty this summer.

"Ed is one of the nation’s top tax scholars and attorneys,” said USC Law Dean Robert K. Rasmussen. “He is a valued addition to the highly regarded corporate and tax program at USC Law.” ...

"I am thrilled with the opportunity to join USC Law,” said Kleinbard, who will teach tax law. “USC has one of the best tax faculties in the country, and the larger Los Angeles community of tax scholars and practitioners is as deep and as strong as that found anywhere. I am very lucky to consider myself a member of this extraordinary institution.”

This news is not interesting at all. Why? Let's put it this way: Haven't we seen enough of rich people at rich schools get the best and brightest, while the poor people at lower-tier schools get nothing this phenomenal?

Lawyers need to stop patting themselves on their backs when there are stories of the privileged being even more privileged.

What happened to the lawyers who fight for the disadvantaged and SIDE with the disadvantaged? They're somewhat all gone (barely heard of). This is probably why there aren't a lot of TRIAL LAWYERS like you see 20-30 years ago.

Thank you for your time....
