Meet the Class of 2015
Jenny FehringSterling, Oklahoma
1. Where did you grow up?
2. Where did you attend undergrad?
University of Oklahoma
3. What degree(s) have you earned?
Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology
4. Why did you choose to attend OU Law?
When I did a tour of the law school with Susan Wilson, she knew the name of every single person we passed. I was extremely impressed by the sense of community that I felt, and it was very reassuring since much of what I had heard/read previously was that law school is cold and cutthroat. Plus, it's the best school in the state and close to home for me.
5. What is your favorite thing about OU?
Pretty much everything. The campus is beautiful, the people are great, and the quality of education is excellent.
6. What (or who) inspired you to pursue a legal education?
I have been working at a criminal defense and family law office for the past two years. It started out as just another job, but over time I became extremely interested in the practice of law, and now I know that this is what I want to do with my life. The attorneys that I work for joke around with me and say that I am out of my mind for wanting to go to law school, but they have also been very supportive and given me all kinds of helpful advice.
7. What is an interesting fact about you?
I grew up on a farm in a town of around 800 people, and while I love the exciting city life, I am very much a country girl and try to escape back home to the quiet as often as possible.
