Christy Caves discusses her upcoming transition from Associate Director of Professional Development to Assistant Dean of Experiential Learning.
The past two and a half years as the Associate Director of Professional Development here at TU Law have been absolutely amazing. I truly love working with our wonderful students to help them develop professionally and obtain employment both during law school and after graduation.
3L Caitlyn Twyman talks about her experiences that led to an interest in immigration law and her recent acceptance to the Department of Justice Attorney General’s Honors Program as a judicial law clerk for the Dallas Immigration Court.
My journey to law school was not one that started when I was eight years old. I was never the girl who stood up on Career Day as a kid and proudly proclaimed that one day I would be an attorney.
Law student Angela Jennings shares her experiences as an intern and extern at the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office.
In September of 2010, I started working for marginalized and indigent criminal defendants as a student Intern for the Tulsa County Public Defender’s Office. In June of 2012, I had the opportunity to escalate my involvement in the office as an Extern. I am not only gaining valuable experience, but actively assisting in life-changing and policy-changing litigation as well.
I have interviewed over one thousand clients charged with felony crimes under Oklahoma law and participated in numerous preliminary hearings as an Intern.
