Kaden Peebles, 2L
My name is Kaden Peebles and I am from Nashville, Arkansas. I graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a B.S. in History and a minor in English. After graduation, I worked as an investigator at the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office and founded a nonprofit organization, The Unseen Faithful (TUF), with my siblings before I moved to Oklahoma. During the summer after my first year of law school, I worked at the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals and published my first book, One True Scrapper. I am a three-time cancer survivor, so I wrote One True Scrapper to share my experiences from treatment and in hopes of encouraging others. My experiences fighting cancer are largely what motivated me to pursue law, because I had to learn to advocate for myself, and now want to advocate for others through the legal system.
I proudly represent my class as the 2L Class President, am on the Barristers Ball Panning Committee, and am a member of Phi Alpha Delta, the Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law, and the Criminal Law Association. I am beyond grateful for the faculty at OCU Law. Several of my professors have made the effort to go beyond supporting me in just the classroom and my legal studies, but have also been encouraging in life decisions outside of law school. My classmates have become family and I cannot imagine life without the friendships I have built at OCU Law.
