Rising 3L Natalie Soas was recently named the “August Person of the Month” by the Southwest Region of National Black Law Students Association (SWBLSA). Natalie has held a variety of BLSA positions at OU Law including Community Chair, and now Vice President. She has organized a number of community outreach efforts for the chapter and is regularly involved in local and national social justice efforts.
"As Vice President of OU Law’s Ada Luis Sipuel Fisher Chapter of the Black Law Students Association, it is my pleasure to gain SWBLSA's recognition as "Person of the Month," said Soas. “Such an award is truly made possible by the collective efforts of our chapter. Every member consistently offers their time, ideas, and opinions toward making the student body, and community of Norman, an impeccable thing to be a part of. Further, the collective efforts of our organization do not go without the support of the University of Oklahoma College of Law's administration - and for that, a special thanks is due to all the individuals that share our vision. Going forward, our chapter, comprised of all races and ethnicities, will continue our commitment to making a positive change in the coming academic year."
Congratulations to Natalie on her recognition!

In His Words: A Life-Changing Four Weeks in China
I have never eaten a spicier meal than the hot pot I had with new friends from other law schools in Indiana and Peru after we explored the Summer Palace in Beijing. We put strips of raw chicken, beef, pork, tripe, and vegetables into the boiling pot of broth our waitress set at the table, cooking them quickly before dipping them in a delicious sauce.
