Meet Our Student Ambassadors

We are pleased to introduce our new student ambassadors: Timothy Migliaro and Kathy Thach. Reach them at and get to know them here:

Tim is a 3rd year majoring in Psychology with a minor in Legal Studies. His area of interest is in Healthcare Law, specifically in the biotech industry and the changing scientific technology and laws surrounding it. This past summer, he worked for Northwell Health, New York State's largest healthcare provider and private employer. Tim is involved on campus with organizations such as USC Make a Wish, the Chi Phi Fraternity, the Trojan Review and the Just Dance Club. In his free time, Tim likes to travel, especially to U.S. National Parks and has visited 21 parks. He also enjoys going to the beach and hiking around the Los Angeles area.

Kathy is a 2nd year majoring in Law, History, and Culture with a minor in Legal Studies. Her areas of interest are in the legal regulations of the right to vote and participation in the electoral process, alongside “big-data” analytical campaign techniques. This past summer, she was a Youth Civic Engagement Fellow with Arizona AANHPI For Equity Coalition, and she is currently an Elections Fellow with the Progressive Vietnamese American Organization. Kathy is involved on campus with organizations such as the Joint Educational Project, Society of Women in Law, and The Sack of Troy. As a native Arizonan, being in Los Angeles is a nice break from the heat and she loves exploring the beaches of L.A. and going on hikes in her free time! 

Daily Trojan Interview

Our new Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies major was featured in an article published in the Daily Trojan. The article quotes Professor Bob Rasmussen and two students who have declared the major. Read about it here.

Latinx Heritage Month

USC is celebrating Latinx Heritage Month through October 15th, and USC Gould is remembering Manuel Ruiz Jr. (1905-1986), who was the first known Latino USC Law School graduate. He received his undergraduate law degree in 1927 and graduate law degree in 1930. Read more about him here.

Trojan Review Symposium

We are pleased to announce that Trojan Review (TR) will be hosting a symposium this fall. This symposium will be centered around a theme, which will be announced on October 1, 2022. Once the theme is announced, students will have until the end of the semester to research and draft their own note to submit. We invite any student interested in academic legal writing to participate by attending the various TR events throughout the semester and by submitting their note for review by the end of the semester. The notes selected to undergo the review process will be published in mid-January and the authors will be encouraged to present their work at various events in the Spring.

For any and all questions, please contact: Marshall Amaya, Learn more about Trojan Review here.
