Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics

Giving San Diego A Voice in Bioethics

San Diego is a world leader in biotechnology and medical technology. USD School of Law established the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics to provide a forum to tackle the pressing implications of advances in areas from genetics, stem cells, and neuroscience to public health, hospital reform, and translational medicine. Dean Stephen C. Ferruolo notes the Center’s collaborative character, which marshals the expertise and innovation of San Diego institutions including UCSD, SDSU, Scripps, Salk, BioCom, and Sanford Burnham Prebys. The Center’s Director, Professor Dov Fox, adds that it offers students a uniquely interdisciplinary curriculum while affording researchers and developers a greater voice in critical matters of regulation. 

Please consider joining seed funders Steven R. Altman, ’86 (JD) and Lisa J. Altman,  ’85 (JD). Your support will promote the cutting-edge work by the Center for Health Law Policy and Bioethics. Make a gift

Memorial Scholarships

Everlasting Tribute

McMahon ’64 (JD), Higgs ’69 (JD) and Thorsnes ’68 (JD) 


On Friday, July 19, USD School of Law and the local legal community honored the life, work and legacy of three law school alumni: Gerald L. McMahon, ’64 (JD) of Seltzer Caplan McMahon and Vitek; Craig D. Higgs, ’69 (JD) of Higgs Fletcher & Mack LLP; and Michael T. Thorsnes, ’68 (JD) of Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire, at a reception at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Garden of the Sea. Together, they contributed more than 81 years of service to USD as members of the Law Alumni Board, Board of Visitors, or Board of Trustees. The many attendees payed tribute to these prominent leaders and stressed their desire to honor them through memorial scholarships. Steven J. Cologne, ’84 (JD), Managing Partner of Higgs Fletcher & Mack, announced the renaming of their scholarship to honor Craig Higgs. John F. “Mickey” McGuire, Jr., Senior Partner at Thorsnes Bartolotta McGuire, spoke about the impressive impact that Michael Thorsnes made at USD as he announced the newly established Michael T. Thorsnes Memorial Fund. Andrea Myers, ’08 (JD), Shareholder at Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek, highlighted the Gerald and Donna McMahon Endowed Scholarship as she extolled the wide ranging respect that Gerald McMahon commanded.

These pillars of the San Diego legal community continue to inspire and make an impact through their wish to give back to law students through scholarship. Read more about these memorial scholarships and contribute to their lasting impact.
