I had the amazing opportunity to spend my summer in New York City, interning in the Legal Division of UN Women. UN Women is the United Nations organization dedicated to the empowerment of women and gender equality.
The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit recently cited OU Law Professor Steven Gensler’s Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rules and Commentary (2018 edition) in an opinion involving a missing painting.
In August, eight students from the OU College of Law participated in an internship at the 96th session of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in Geneva, Switzerland.
This summer, I served as a legal intern for the International Justice Mission at one of its field offices in Chiang Mai, Thailand. IJM is a faith-based nonprofit headquartered in Washington, D.C., with 17 offices in Africa, Latin America, south Asia and southeast Asia.
I did not have a cookie cutter journey to my decision to apply to the OU Law Center’s Legal Assistant Education Program or my career as a paralegal. As an undergrad, I planned to take the LSAT and enter law school immediately after graduation.

I have never eaten a spicier meal than the hot pot I had with new friends from other law schools in Indiana and Peru after we explored the Summer Palace in Beijing. We put strips of raw chicken, beef, pork, tripe, and vegetables into the boiling pot of broth our waitress set at the table, cooking them quickly before dipping them in a delicious sauce.
