|Albert Lum, with wife Theresa, and daughters Jennifer, 18 months, and Mina, 6 months, at his USC Gould graduation in 1962. At the time, Lum was two credits shy of completing his law degree, but "USC allowed me to go through the ceremonies,” he recalls. Admitted to the California bar in 1963, Lum began practice immediately and returned two years later for the missing legal writing course. "Funnily, I used my Supreme Court case brief as part of the course requirement,” he says. Lum officially earned his LLB in 1965.|
