Ta’Chelle Jones, 2L

As a life-long Okie, I earned a B.A. in Journalism and Masters in Human Relations with an emphasis in Human Resource Development from the University of Oklahoma. Before law school, I primarily worked as a human resources business partner in the education and insurance industries. Though beginning law school during a global pandemic was a completely new experience, I quickly grew to love the OCU Law community for its camaraderie, encouragement, and perseverance. My professors have not only been knowledgeable and passionate about the topics they teach, but they have also taken a genuine interest in my success and development as a student.   


As a result, I spent the last summer clerking for the Houston office of Norton Rose Fulbright and the Oklahoma City office of Ogletree Deakins.  During my first year, I participated in the 1L Moot Court Competition, served as a Student Advisory Board Member, and was elected Vice President of the 1L Class. As a second-year law-student, I am a member of the Student Advisory Board and the American Bar Association National Appellate Advocacy Team, while serving as Vice President of the John E. Green Black Law Student Association.  I believe that OCU Law is a wonderful place to study law and embark on your journey to becoming an attorney, judge, or many other professional paths. In any case, adventure awaits, and I look forward to meeting you!
