Nikki Erece, 2L

I was born and raised in Hilo, Hawai‘i. I graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo with a B.A. in Administration of Justice and a minor in Gender and Women’s Studies. I knew I wanted to pursue a law degree but really found my passion of social justice and equality while at UH Hilo. Post undergrad, I obtained a Master of Legal Studies degree from Pepperdine.

Leaving Hawai‘i for law school was a huge step for me and I chose to attend OCU Law because it really felt like the faculty here wanted me to succeed as much as I did. This summer I had the privilege to be a Judicial Extern Clerk for the Honorable April D. Collins at Oklahoma County. I am the Vice President for the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, Secretary for the Murrah Student Association, and Social Media Chair for the Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law. I am also a member of the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity. On top of being an Admissions Ambassador, I also am an Academic Fellow for the 1L Doctrinal course – Civil Procedure and Practice. These connections, opportunities, and the supportive community have only solidified that OCU Law was absolutely the right choice for me.
