Emma Kincade is from Tulsa, OK and is a citizen of Cherokee Nation. She graduated summa cum laude from Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. During her time at OSU, the Udall Foundation named Emma a national scholar in the division of Native American health care. Notably her most rewarding position, she worked as a founding member of the Center for Sovereign Nations, which focuses on Native American student success and the education of tribal sovereignty. Emma was also selected to present on teaching strategies for Native American history at the 2017 Harvard Alumni of Color Conference and has served as an intern for the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C. Emma’s motivation to attend law school stemmed from a cultivation of experiences in which she was able to advocate for tribal nations and their members.
In her first year of law school, Emma made the Dean’s List and Faculty Honor Roll. She also received CALI Awards for Legal Research and Writing I, Civil Procedure II, Contracts II, and Property. She sent her summer working in Tulsa for GableGotwals and in OKC for Mazaheri Law. Currently in her second year of law school, Emma is a member of the American Bar Association Moot Court Appellate Advocacy Team. She looks forward to competing with the team this spring.
