About Us

The Latinx Law Student Association (LLSA) is a student organization composed of Latinx law students and students interested in issues affecting the Latinx community at USC Gould School of Law.  We aim to create and cultivate an encouraging environment for current and prospective Latinx students through academic support, scholarship, community service, and networking events.

Among its objectives is to serve as a support network for Latinx law students on campus and to help the retention and success of Latinx law students. LLSA works in conjunction with the Admissions Office to increase the enrollment of Latino students through a Phone-a-Thon for admitted Latino students. Besides keeping our members abreast of scholarships, Latino-centric events, and potential employment opportunities, LLSA encourages its members to become involved in public interest organizations that serve the Latino community in Los Angeles. Latinx Law Student Association activities include speaker events with local law firms, Hora Latin@ (a Legal Spanish conversation group), Judges & Lawyers Nights (honoring USC Gould Latino Alums) and other social and cultural gatherings for the benefit of Latino law students and friends at USC Gould.  We also aim to maintain strong ties to our Alumni through networking events and various functions with the USC Latino Alumni Association.

These events aim to help build community and familiarity among Latinx and non-Latinx friends and classmates.  Our members have a diverse range of career interests: immigrant rights, corporate law, criminal law, immigration, rights for the mentally disabled, civil rights, among others.
