Harper Gernet-Girard '15

Hometown: Pasadena, CA
Undergrad: Smith College

USC Gould has offered me an atmosphere that has pushed me to thrive. I am the co-president of OUTLaw, USC Gould’s LGBT student organization. Our organization is working to raise money to endow a scholarship for students pursuing LGBT equality through the law. I am also involved in the Hale Moot Court Honors Program, and I am a writing fellow for the first-year Legal Writing program. Along with the classes, these programs have made it so that I never have an idea now without immediately thinking of a counter-argument, the pros and cons, or the opposite point of view. Gould has also given me a once-in-a-life-time experience of meeting inspiring members of the legal community, such as the first female presiding justice in California and some of the most powerful female partners in Los Angeles. These experiences and memories have taught me so much and I will forever be grateful for them.
