As a valued USC Gould School of Law alumni, your presence at the admitted student receptions is designed to give admitted students and their families living outside of Southern California the opportunity to learn more about the law school and its legendary Trojan Alumni Network. This network can often be vague and nebulous to those from outside the region, but we believe it is among the strongest selling points we have to offer. Through informal conversations with yourselves and other members of the USC Gould community, including Dean Guzman, senior staff from admissions, career services and alumni relations, we believe the Trojan network and familial atmosphere can be put into quantifiable terms for our admitted students. We look forward to re-connecting and introducing you to the next generation of lawyers from USC.
