Re: USC Gould School of Law

A story featured a 1911 USC Gould graduate and Japanese immigrant who received a license posthumously Wednesday from the California State Bar. After he earned his law degree at USC, Sei Fujii was not eligible to sit for the California bar because state law barred legal licenses for immigrants unless they were eligible for citizenship. Federal law limited naturalization to “free white persons” and those of African descent. After federal law changed in 1952, Fujii became a citizen at age 73. He died of a heart attack 51 days later. Though unable to obtain a law license, Fujii used his legal education to challenge discriminatory laws.
