The USC Gould School of Law’s Graduate and International Programs (G&IP) welcomed its newest students to campus recently, kicking off the 2022-2023 academic year.
“Seeing the world and legal issues through an international lens is essential today,” USC Gould Dean Andrew Guzman said during the Aug. 16 orientation. “We live in a truly global, interconnected environment. Business, trade, public law, environment, human rights, economics, security — they all cross boundaries, and everyone’s success relies on everyone else.”

This year, the Gould School is also offering two new graduate certificates jointly with the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, focusing on the intersection of law and social work. The Law, Social Justice and Diversity certificate will be offered in person for students who want to learn more about law and social justice, while the Social Work Administration certificate will be offered as an online-only program for students interested in the laws and regulations that impact social work.
According to Dean Guzman, whether on campus or online, Gould’s students now join the Trojan Family — a loyal, lifelong and worldwide alumni network.
“The commitment of the Trojan network to one another is unmatched,” he said. “Our law school alums feel a passion and enthusiasm for Gould that’s astounding.”
