New York University School of Law
Tiffany Gee Ching Lo is a Pollack Scholar and Dean’s Scholar at the New York University School of Law. She received a Bachelor of Arts with high distinction from the University of California, Berkeley in May 2018. She graduated in three years with double majors in Political Science and Rhetoric, with specializations in American Politics and History and Theory.
Tiffany spent her childhood in Hong Kong before moving to California at fourteen years old. She was delighted to learn from rich cultural diversity in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was also able to compare and contrast the differing norms and policies between Hong Kong and the United States, using this to inform and contribute her perspectives on issues such as voting rights and reproductive health. Her longstanding interest in politics and law and passion for research, writing, and public speaking fueled her fascination with the American political and legal system, especially the judiciary. Participating in high school mock trial, speech and debate, and the We the People civics competition team reinforced her desire to become an attorney.
During and after college, Tiffany worked in various courthouses and law firms around the Bay Area. She assisted litigants from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and handled matters spanning family, civil, criminal, personal injury, and immigration law. She especially enjoyed using her fluency in Mandarin and Cantonese to promote greater access to the legal system. She also gained exposure to Hong Kong’s legal system through working in a barrister’s chambers, solicitor’s office, and information technology company.
At NYU, Tiffany is involved with the Asian-Pacific American Law Students Association and the Women of Color Collective. She is excited to star as a cast member in Law Revue, the Law School’s annual musical production. Tiffany looks forward to a legal career filled with complex and cross-border work. She is committed to empowering undeserved communities through pro bono work, as well as advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession by participating in recruitment and mentorship initiatives.
