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.”
