Lopez holds a Bachelor's degree in Economics from Duke University, where he also minored in Japanese. Lopez obtained his law degree and a Master of Laws in Taxation from Loyola Law School, where, among other activities, he served as Secretary of the Tax Law Society and contributed to a published law review article regarding the impact of federal tax laws on persons with disabilities.
