Meet Our Scholars
Kevin Liu is a third-year student at Cornell Law School and is active in the law school’s LGBTQ student organization and the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, both of which he was the vice president. Prior to law school, Kevin double-majored in biochemistry and nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto. He also worked with The 519, Canada’s largest LGBTQ community center, where he gave workshops and presentations on accessing healthcare, HIV/AIDS, and discriminatory blood donation policies to LGBTQ refugees from Asia and other parts of the world. While early cultural expectations guided Kevin towards the sciences, his passion for the law helped him forge a path that combines all aspects of his interests and identity. Through a career in law, Kevin hopes to advance scientific innovation and to advance healthcare equity and accessibility for minority populations.
