I was born and raised in Tulsa, so I loved the idea of attending law school here. Tulsa is a wonderful community full of great opportunities, and as I’ve grown up, the city has grown as well. Before college, I attended private schools my whole life. I loved the close-knit communities and atmosphere there, and I knew that I would enjoy the similar environment at TU.
2. What made you interested in pursuing law?
I have family who attended TU Law. They spoke very highly of it and encouraged me to check it out. Once I did, it wasn’t hard to see that this is a law school on the rise. The small size of the school also appealed to me.
For many students, studying abroad offers them the opportunity to experience a new place, new culture and of course make new friends all while earning course credits. For 2L Blake Johnson, who is in the middle of the photograph, studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland was no exception. Whether he was being placed in the back of an armored car in Belfast, studying for class or working at one of the largest solicitor’s firms in Dublin, Johnson certainly had an experience he will never forget.
I am externing at the Missouri Attorney General’s Office in Jefferson City, Missouri. One reason I chose this position is because I wanted to be closer to home this summer. I am from St. Louis and Jefferson City is only about an hour and a half away. More importantly, I wanted to get a glimpse of how the legal system works from the government side. I knew this position would provide me with the opportunity to see how the State of Missouri enforces the law through the court system, particularly, the laws you don’t hear about on a daily basis.
