Lauren Akers earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2010, where she was an assistant articles editor and judiciary committee member of the Oklahoma Law Review.  While in law school, Lauren also founded the 109th chapter of the National Animal Legal Defense Fund, a national animal law advocacy organization committed to protecting the lives and advancing the interests of animals through the legal system. Prior to law school, Lauren earned her bachelor’s degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, where she graduated cum laude.
