Veronica Mendoza

CBL Scholar Class of 2026

Veronica Louise Mendoza is a 1L at UC Law San Francisco. Veronica is a proud alumna of UCLA, where she graduated with her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Communication Studies in 2018. Prior to graduate school, Veronica worked in the media and entertainment industry, building celebrity client brands through start-ups and licensing deals at United Talent Agency. Veronica also spearheaded the GoNoodle x Tonies Mindfulness collaboration at the children’s media company GoNoodle. These experiences inspired Veronica to pursue a JD/MBA through UC Law’s concurrent degree programming, which allowed her to graduate with her MBA from the University of Notre Dame in 2023 before attending law school. 

At Notre Dame, Veronica was heavily involved with the student entrepreneurship center and the Women in Business club. Veronica’s interest in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) space was furthered through her internships in marketing at the Coca-Cola Company and strategy consulting for the toy company Tonies. Veronica hopes to leverage her diverse backgrounds to launch a riveting career at the intersection of technology, business, and law. 

A Bay Area native, Veronica is looking forward to breaking ground in Silicon Valley as a summer associate at Latham & Watkins LLP and an in-house legal intern at Intuit.
