Sara was graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Philosophy and Religious Studies in 2008. She earned her Juris Doctorate from the William H. Bowen School of Law in 2012. Sara earned the Top Paper in Advanced Legal Writing for her paper on the Arkansas DNA Statute as it applied to the West Memphis 3 case.
Sara’s professional experience is focused primarily in domestic and civil litigation. Her volunteer work includes clerking at the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas where she assisted the attorneys responsible for the victory in the ACLU’s challenge of Arkansas Act 1, and she researched, drafted, and prepared responses to proposed bills during the 2011 legislative session on behalf of the ACLU. Sara’s time at the ACLU has largely shaped her belief that everyone is entitled to diligent, competent, and affordable advocacy when faced with injustice.
