“I would like to thank you and your staff so much for all the hard work in helping me obtain my U.S. Citizenship. I know the process would have been so much difficult without all your help. Trying to become a citizen was the most stressful situation I had to deal with in the past. But all the USC Gould team made the whole process so much easier with all your time, patience and positive attitudes.”

-Mario Zetino, USC Staff

Student Testimonials

“From the very first day, I was given the responsibility of leading three immigration cases. Within the first month, I wrote a legal brief that was submitted to Immigration Court, attended a hearing in which U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conceded the case based on the brief I wrote and began composing a declaration with a client on the extreme violence she had experienced in her home country.”
Sehreen Ladak, JD ’15, Associate, JLG Lawyers

“The clinic’s approach is practice-oriented and allowed me to take the lead on several cases. I learned how to develop an initial client interview into a solid legal defense.”
Evan Langinger, JD ’14, Attorney, Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office
